Having alterPaul given any place of “honor” would be a stupid move. You would end up with a twenty-five minute speech of incoherent/delusional ramblings plus sound bites used against the nominee.
Giving him 25 minutes to rant, keep it on the economy and the congress, and then you will not have to deal with him in a 3rd party.
I think most folks agree with 90% of what he says. They do not agree with his foreign policy or his 9/11 crap. But I do agree with his mistrust of the Fed and the stuff he says about Congress...even though he doesnt always follow his own advice.
That said, the powers that be CAN agree to let him speak without rambling about his feelings about Islam and the Middle east.
