What a completely odd question to ask Rand Paul, of all people. Senator Paul is one of the most conservative members of Congress. His father, Ron Paul, is considered to be the spiritual father of the Libertarian movement that has been rising up in the U.S. over the last four and a half years, otherwise known as the Tea Party. You would be really hard-pressed to find a more constitutionally conservative member of Congress.
And Candy Crowley asks him if he’d ever consider becoming a Democrat???
That would be like asking Barack Obama if he’d ever consider becoming a Tea Party conservative. What do you think the answer is going to be? Maybe she just asked him to see what his reaction would be.
He laughs. Silly question, Candy.
