If Ron Paul supporters showed up en masse at these conventions, it just means supporters of the other candidates have to work harder next time, should RuPaul run again.
On foreign policy, I’ll have to agree with you: he is an idiot.
So, the question is, should the RNC have the power to change rules between conventions, and should the candidates be able to pick their own delegates, should the ones the conventions pick be insufficiently orthodox (at this point in time, as far as I know, that rule change was re-instated)? These rule changes affect ANY delegates, not just unruly RuPaul delegates.
I do not believe that the candidates would have the power to PICK their delegates, only the power to approve or veto those delegates, based on SUPPORT of the candidate involved.
