    Heard this one on the radio this morning:

    So let's say Romney or Gingrich win the nomination.

    What if they say they will elect Ron Paul Secretary of Treasury or put him over monetary policy.
    Do you think this will sway Ron Paul supporters into voting for the Republican Nominee over Obama?

    The guy that was presenting this idea seems to think there is no way Republicans can lose if they do this. Not saying I agree but interesting to think about nevertheless.

    Sec of the Treasury Ron Paul would be a good idea! If not president!

    President Newt Gingrich
    Vice President Rick perry

    Appointing him as the Secretary of State would be no more a leap of imagination than appointing Hillary.

    So, you want to put a liberal in as president, a jackass in as his vice and have Paul take orders from them? :confused:

    Matthew is for anyone whom he perceives speaks poorly of blacks. His, is an easy vote to secure.

    I don't think it could happen. In the very slim chance that Paul would be selected, he would still need senate approval.
