Despite his and his team’s efforts, Rand Paul’s presidential campaign has simply not taken off.  The global unrest and Islamic terrorist threat work against him in this cycle, and he’s clearly shaken by how little support he has managed to acquire.  In addition to refusing to appear in the undercard debate,...
