    Holy crap, if RON PAUL is within the margin of error against Obama in a GALLUP Poll Obama might want to consider doing a Johnson.

    At this rate I’m thinking Obama might have a serious challenger for the Democratic nomination. He would still be renominated more than likely, but it would seriously damage Obama, and the party, which is probably why Russ Feingold more than likely won’t try it. But I do know one guy that could probably be talked into it by the right people-Gavin Newsome.
