    McCain says he would support Rand Paul for President

    McCain says he would support Rand Paul for president | TheHill

    Rand Paul collects yet another establishment politician. Are people still convinced this guy is some fresh outsider that will shake things up?

    I'm not a Rand Paul supporter, but I don't blame him for who supports him.

    Well I don't either, but if you're looking for someone fresh and divergent from the establishment, it should probably concern you when the candidate you support is enthusiastically backed by a good chunk of the establishment.

    A rather key qualifier you are leaving out:

    ....Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) told The New Yorker he would support Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) for president if Paul is the Republican nominee.....
    Um. Duh?

    That sounds logical to me (a little obvious but nothing wrong with that).

    Well it wasn't obvious to Obama supporters in 08 and it isn't obvious to Rand Paul supporters now. So...had to be said.

    Yeah, because as he said, he can influence Rand. That's what makes it so concerning. He couldn't influence Ron and that's why McCain said multiple times that he wouldn't support Ron regardless if he got the nomination or not. Ron Paul wasn't perfect on the issues, but he was a legitimate outsider. His son seems to be more of a shill than anything else.

    I doubt that anyone who voted against McCain (Which was most voters.) will care who he endorses.
