It's still a long way to 2016, but as of now the crazies have the upper hand in the Iowa Republican Caucuses.
Rand Paul won't be the nominee. If he is, the Republican party will go down to an historic landslide defeat. I, for one, couldn't vote for him.
If Iowa's Republicans pick Paul, it would be tantamount to not holding the caucuses after all. It would simply mean that Iowa would be irrelevant.
