My Dad's listening too. I found that out the first time we heard the idiot Ron Elving. Dad called and said, "Can you believe they've got that hack on again?" (We haven't forgotten his sexist attacks on Hillary in 2008.)
There's a lot of cross over that Ron Paul could bring to a general election. Dad would vote for him too. Mom says she would consider him and that's the most you'll get from Mom until election day. She won't vote early. She's always afraid that some scandal or detail will surface in the last 24 hours of the race so she always votes at the very last minute and she's got everything ranked and all but really won't say anything until the last minute. With Hillary, I think she announced 2 weeks prior to our primaries that she was voting for Hillary.
That was a big thing. Not just because my mom wasn't a big an of the Clintons but also because she doesn't do that, not 2 weeks ahead. But she knew there were people in our state who read her site and she wanted to be sure that anyone thinking about Hillary knew why she had decided on Hillary (health care and Hillary being a fighter were the two reasons).
Oh, Ron Paul's speaking. Wait a second.
"And all I can think about in tough campaigns and all the hard work is the work you people do," he's telling his supporters.

I thought I could listen. But twice Robert Siegel felt the need to talk over Ron Paul. Okay, I'm turning on the TV to find some other coverage. Siegel won't shut up.
