Ron Paul, the Antiwar Presidential Candidate for 2012

People are urging Ron Paul to run once again, in 2012:

I can't think of a better candidate.

If Paul runs, it will probably be for the Republican Party nomination. If he loses (as he probably will), he can then run on either the Libertarian Party or Constitution Party, if he wants.

But perhaps the smartest move would be for Paul to run as an independent, with a more progressive-leaning/antiwar (and anti-corporatist) candidate. A right-left antiwar fusion ticket.

I still like the idea of Karen Kwiatkowski as Ron Paul's VP pick, but Ralph Nader might be more attractive to those on the left.

Hear hear! Ron Paul 2012! I cannot think of anyone else - in the LP or out of it - who can better represent the Libertarian/pro-peace message. I sincerely hope he runs.

Dennis Kucinich as VP for Ron Paul running on the Libertarian Party would be awesome. Would rally a true bi-partison of moderate - dissenting Republicans and Democrats.
