Here's a thought that just occured to me. I'm originally from MN which has in the recent past had two dark horse candidates elected when the MSM said they had no chance, one was Paul Wellstone. Wellstone handily beat an incumbent Senator and beat him again in a rematch six years later. In my opinion he won the rematch because he did what he said he would. The other was Ventura who was a running joke until election night and the Democrats and Republicans got blindsided by young independent voters who were dissatified with the status quo. Ventura turned out to be maybe a little too blunt for Minnesotans. He also had a tendency to stuff his foot in his mouth. As pcosmar said I heard about RP here and went searching for info and again he is the only candidate I have any real enthusiasm for hell he's the first candidate I was willing to send money too. I could bring myself to vote for Richardson or Huckabee but they ain't my first pick.
