    on the way down, someone yells, "How you doing?"

    To which Paul resoonds..."So far, so good!"



    Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul insists he still could win his party's nomination despite not yet winning a single caucus or primary contest.

    “It all depends on how you measure winning,” the veteran Texas congressman said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" program, noting that caucus states don't technically choose delegates until later in the year. “We think we’re going to have the most delegates out of Iowa … same thing in Maine.”

    “The bottom line is who is going to get the delegates," he added, "and we think we’re doing pretty good.”

    Host Candy Crowley, however, pressed back.

    “It’s hard to see how you put together enough delegates," she said.

    “You don’t know until the end," Paul retorted. “There’s every reason to believe this momentum will continue. It’s still relatively early. … Nobody actually knows the future.”

    Paul is stuffing his supporters into the delegates that will attend the national convention, most of them going obligated to vote for people other than Paul on the first round.

    If this turns into a brokered convention, Paul is going to be a MAJOR player because so many of the delegates in attendance will actually be Paulites.

    And her weight invalidates her question HOW exactly?

    Or are you just intimated that she would probably KILL Ron Paul outright by simply body slamming him?
    I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want a President a fat liberal journalist could kill outright using nothing but her body.

    Scoff all you want to, but the brokered convention is becoming highly likely with the Romney meltdown and the Newt/Santorum fight for the 'conservative base'. It's going to be really tough for anyone to get to 1144 delegates going in.

    There are too many delegates to be assigned to count any of the 4 remaining candidates out.

    A brokered convention means establishment conservatives choose and that's a Romney nomination.

    Not necessarily. If after the first vote no candidate has 1144, the delegates are then unbound and can vote for whomever they wish. If after successive votes there is no majority they will look to draft a candidate to run in the General Election. I believe that Paul's plan is to own enough delegates to succeed in reaching 1144 on the second vote.
