Ross Douthat has some advice for Ron Paul, the $18 million man: Try out the early states and see if you do well enough to win some delegates. If yes, keep running in order to influence the Republican nomination process. If no, take the money and run — to the Libertarian Party. It’s different than the advice I would give, but it’s interesting in light of Paul’s new flexibility on the third-party question.
Douthat has advice for the other Republican contenders as well.
