Ron Paul, the colourful anti-war libertarian Texan doctor, is still in the Republican race, even though John McCain long since won enough delegates to secure the GOP nomination.The congressman is now on doing the rounds of TV stations on a new book tour. Inevitably, he’s being asked who he backs for the presidency and his answer predictably is not one that places a premium on party loyalty.
“It would be a tough choice, because I see them as all about the same,” he told CNN. “But I would think the one who would most likely keep us from expanding the war is probably Obama.
