It would look a little something like this.
Google Rand Paul today and you'll find stories about him suspending his presidential campaign under "Breaking News." In one way it is; in another it isn't. It's really an old story, but those who don't know history have been doomed (again) to repeat it.
I've got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that presidential candidates are starting to talk about Internet issues. The bad news is that presidential candidates are starting to talk about Internet issues.
The whole purpose of this exercise is to determine the difference, if any, between the candidates seeking the presidency. Without Rand Paul, there isn't a difference to determine, not even with Trump.
With the Iowa caucuses upon us, it seems like every Republican tramping through the snow claims to be a Bible-believing, God-fearing, Jesus-loving Christian. Some trot out their parents; others offer personal conversion stories. Some defend persecuted Christians; others explain their policies in Biblical terms. It's a fruitless exercise.
After what already feels like a very long campaign, the presidential candidates will face their first real test Monday as Democrats and Republicans will caucus in Iowa.
This week the nation got one last chance to see the Republicans debate before the Iowa caucuses on Tuesday. Of course, a certain bully chose not to attend, but that only allowed for the evening's highlight: watching Megyn Kelly conclusively prove that the way to prevail over a bully is to not back down. Having stood her ground all week against what in the opening question she called "the elephant not in the room" (one that had called her a "bimbo" and a "lightweight"), Kelly was, in fact, one of the night's big winners. Her charm and authority demolished Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio on their immigration hypocrisy. The other breakthrough came as Rand Paul addressed a much more serious elephant not in the room: the fact that "the war on drugs has disproportionately affected our African-American community." As to who won overall it's hard to say, but you'd have to start with the blonde, heavyweight moderator.
We have serious doubts that we'll see Trump at any future debates -- after all, if he can blow them off with impunity, why would he subject himself to them in the first place?
The bad news for Cruz was that because Trump wasn't present to take incoming from all the challengers, Cruz became the target of attacks from most of the other candidates.
State lawmakers now have the tools they need to improve medical cannabis programs to truly meet the needs of the patients they are meant to serve.
Trump's refusal to debate his Republican opponents in Monday's Iowa Republican caucus provided an unexpected spark of controversy and more evidence of a growing split within the Republican Party. Although Trump forwent the debate, candidates present wasted no time jabbing at the business mogul.
Colorado's Republican Senator, Cory Gardner, spent a good chunk of his 2014 election campaign telling us that the Life at Conception Act was really nothing more than a symbolic statement, when, in fact, it is federal personhood legislation that would ban all abortion, even for rape.
U.S. Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) seem to have very little in common. They are in different generations, running for the nominations of different parties, and seem to be on the exact opposite of the ideological spectrum.
The next time an American voter asks Bernie Sanders what he means by "socialism," this is what I would whisper in his ear...
With the Iowa caucuses only seven days away, the Rand Paul campaign is working to secure students caucusing for their candidate. Cliff Maloney, 24, is the National Youth Director for the campaign. He has been working on an initiative to have 10,000 students turnout to caucus for Paul since September. Maloney said he is confident that they will reach their goal Monday, Feb. 1.
