Obama, by virtue of this will be able to look at the American people and proclaim to be defending their way of life from someone willing to take it all away. Americans have to a significant extent become used to that course, and it will be hard to get them to give that up, and Obama would use that to his every advantage.
    See, though, the primaries will be fought on Paul's turf. 4 years ago, nobody really cared about the Fed, the drive to limit the government to it's constitutional roots was still muted, and opposing foriegn intervention seemed retreat-ish. In 2012, the Republican debate will be about limiting government, fed by the Tea Party, focused on the destructive nature of the current policies especially QE2 and the overspending that necessitates it, and Republicans, too, are tired of the wars - especially a new one in Libya that nobody seems able to explain. Ron Paul has the ideological edge going into the Republican debates.

    What we've got here is an elimination of social policy from the vote. An interesting exercise, but it lacks foreign policy.

    Paul vs. Clinton is a more difficult decision. Neither Paul nor Obama offer me any international spine.

    In either case, my fiscal conservatism is likely to win out over the (non-existant) social policy and foreign policy considerations.

    1. Paul (hopefully he only closes as many bases as Obama has)... for fiscal policy.
    2. Clinton... for international spine (and cause I'm fem like dat).
    3. Obama... because he was in the poll.
    4. A green, libertarian, female, non-incumbent hawk... wish vote.

    It seems like too much for this board, but then I realized this poll is a year old
