Senator Rand Paul was fast becoming a Republican front-runner for the presidential nomination. Was, that is, until he decided to stir up Bill Clinton’s past with Monica Lewinsky. This was a major misstep for Paul and a bigger one for the GOP in general.
Democrats are aggressively attacking Republican core voters; an increasing percentage of Americans think the GOP is out of touch; and Republicans need to come up with free-market solutions to the nation’s ills.
Rand Paul is not looking forward. He’s looking to rake up the muck of the past – and against a popular former Democrat president whose favorable rating remains very high.
