Terry Holt, a veteran of George W. Bush’s presidential campaigns, speculates on how the GOP could tame Ron Paul:
The thing about Ron Paul is, what does he want that we have? He has never been someone who was interested in being co-opted or in trading and dealing.
When I was a staffer in the Republican leadership in the House (of Representatives), whenever we were trying to find votes for whatever we were doing, he would tell us how he was voting and that was that.
There was nothing he wanted that we could offer him in exchange for his vote.
