The fact that Ron Paul can't even get airtime on Faux despite having raised more money in a single day than any other candidate in history lets you know exactly what is going to happen.
Indie leaning voters out of the GOP will either head to the dems (60%) or they will flock to Ron Paul. Breaking the 10 percent barrier, Paul will decide to run independent. Faux news being unable to stoop so low as to bring on a guy who has a passionate, loyal following and a large amount of cash - will give the already galvanized supporters yet more ammunition to strike out like Ross Perot.
Just for what its worth, let's hope she picks Bill Richardson as the new Secretary of State. Ohio was a narrow race despite a sitting president during wartime running unopposed in his own party - against a boston brahmin ? The fact that McCain is surging right now means that he deserved it to begin with (and it makes my signed copy of his book all the more valuable yeah!) and second, more importantly - the GOP is being torn apart by the bush republicans running to the more maverick, conservative, and reagan-like leadership that McCain represents.
So here's the prediction: Ron Paul Declares Independent, makes a 10 percent dent in the GOP base. Clinton, after winning the primary - battles against the 40% that won't vote for her and watches that 40% drop to 30% thanks to Ron. McCain battles hard against Clinton in the General.
