Good Luck, Ron Paul!

Today Ron Paul is defending his Congressional seat in the Texas 14th District. Not only that, he is still in on the Republican presidential race in Texas, Ohio, Vermont, and Rhode Island.

Even if McCain wins, and it is a big if, because many votes will go to Huckabee and Paul, he will not get all the BOUND votes he needs to secure the nomination. This process is aggravatingly sloppy around the edges. Just as the President is elected, not by popular vote but by the Electoral College, primary delegates are not obliged in some states to be "bound".

In Ohio, the delates are not obliged to stick with McCain if they see a better option coming up later on. So, as I keep saying, the fat lady is not yet ready to sing!

Good luck, Dr.Paul!!!
