Ron Paul has framed his campaign as a long-term fight for the soul of his party. To that end, Paul has continued to campaign against John McCain, even though he has no shot at the nomination, and his supporters are planning to publicly upstage the nominee at the Republican convention in September.
John McCain may have the Republican nomination wrapped up, but that isn't stopping Ron Paul from campaigning in Pennsylvania, where he is attacking McCain as insufficiently conservative. It's an odd posture for a candidate who won much support for his anti-war position, a topic that Paul omits here.
An inquest jury in Britain has officially concluded that Princess Diana and her companion, Dodi Al Fayed, were killed in a 1997 car crash in Paris as a result of "gross negligence manslaughter" by their chauffeur, Henri Paul, and the paparazzi.
There were some heated exchanges in Wednesday's debate between the Republican candidates. John McCain and Mitt Romney argued about who wanted to stay in Iraq longer and Ron Paul won a round of applause when he said the front-runners were bickering over "technicalities" while their war bankrupts the country.
Because Dennis Kucinich was barred from the Democrats' South Carolina debate, there was no one willing to say what Kucinich would have said: Bankers are crooks who will steal from the public unless the government holds them accountable.
Boy, was CNN ever psyched about a Ron Paul interview they had on their site -- a major traffic driver for CNN.com! -- the day of the CNN/YouTube Republican debate, CNN's John Roberts tells Paul in this clip from the channel's post-debate coverage Wednesday. Paul, seemingly nonplused, points out that he was summarily and unfairly ignored until close to the end and gets in a few digs at his fellow candidates.
Along with family gatherings and counting one's blessings, Thanksgiving has come to signify a rather rosy view of the unity of American society. This weekend, however, two largely overlooked news items -- one about unexpected financial issues that some wounded American veterans face and another about hunger in New York City -- tell a different story.
Ron Paul may not be ahead in the polls, but he's probably the only presidential candidate who already has his face on a coin. The feds have seized a cache of gold, silver and copper "liberty dollars" bearing Paul's visage. Other than a mutual distaste for the Federal Reserve, the Republican candidate has no relationship with the makers of the coins.
