Are You Ready For Senator Ron Paul?

Ron Paul!

"It's certainly crossed my mind," Paul told The Ballot Box of a potential run for Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's (R-Texas) Senate seat next year.

New numbers out Wednesday from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling found Paul was second only to Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst (R) among Texas Republicans asked who they want to see run for the seat in 2012.

The poll found Dewhurst to be the top choice of Republicans, garnering 23 percent support. But Paul was right behind him as the pick of 20 percent of GOP voters.

Really Texas? Really?

Personally, I don't believe any polling at this point. 2012 is just too far away. if we learned anything from the pronouncements about the death of the GOP after Obama's election, it's that everything can change in 2 years.

Still, Paul would have a lot of advantages in a primary race: high name recognition, a huge fund-raising base and of course an army of, um, dedicated followers. Oh and don't forget the blimp.

On the upside, if he does run for the Senate, at least the rest of us won't have to suffer watching him run for President again.
