What will prevail?

Ideology or tactic?

PS: As far as I know, Paul couldn't choose Perry as they both have their main residence in the same US state.

None of these people. Jim DeMint, Gary Johnson, Andrew Napolitano, Jesse Ventura, and Bob McDonald are good choices.

My first guess would be governor Butch Otter of Idaho. Extremely libertarian and has executive experience.

If Mike Pence weren't running for governor he'd get a look. Gov. Daniels should be spoken with. He needs a libertarian leaning so-con and DeMint fits that as would Pence (if he weren't running for gov) maybe Sam Brownback.

I think that Otter can be Paul, 1st choice, because choosing DeMint would kill Paul in needed-to-win states, like NH. Governor Corbett would be a good choice too, because he's one of 2010's governors that isn't embroiled in controversy (PA is more viable to a Republican gain than OH, because Paul would be seen as Kasich 2.0.).

Is he a Paulite?

Anyhow, if I were Paul I'd choose Buddy Roemer.  Seriously.

Roemer could help dispell the racist thing, with the "I lost to David Duke" arguement.

Either Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia or Jon Hunstman, Jr., to reassure Republicans in the event Ron Paul dies while in office of a ready, capable and reliably mainstream conservative successor.

This is all assuming, of course, that Ron Paul has a chance in hell of winning the nomination, let alone the general election.

I was thinking more that he's similar enough to Ron Paul's viewpoints that Paul wouldn't have to worry too much about a "heart attack" upon election, while also having a squeaky-clean personal life, not being a conspiracy theorist, and having "moderate" appeal.  He's also quite a good speaker and debater.

Yeah, he needs a VP fairly close in views or he'd almost certainly drop dead from some unknown malady after assuming office.

Walter Williams might be good were he not so old. Rand Paul would be a very lulzy VP.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Okay he is too dumb to go for strategy. Besides, no sane republican that isn't in the Ron Paul libertarian conspiracy boat would accept.

He'd ask Ventura, maybe Johnson. DeMint is probably the closets to a major republican that might accept/Paul would offer to.

Jim DeMint is the best choice. I think Mike Lee is another interesting choice, however.
