Rand Paul's Triumphant Filibuster

"Has Rand Paul’s filibuster already changed the GOP?" asks The American Conservative's W. James Antle III, answered by Patrick J. Buchanan's argument that "[t]he hegemony of the neocons and the lockstep conformity of a vast a slice of the GOP that cost Reagan’s party its primacy during the Bush wars, seems to be coming to an end," respectively — Rumblings From the Conservative Street and It’s Not John McCain’s GOP Anymore.

Yup. And it is part of Rand Paul's political genius to be able to craft a political posture as a conservative rather than a libertarian. He has a much stronger political appeal outside the ranks of his father's disciples that way. Senator Paul is a much more astute and clever politician than Rep. Paul was, and he is showing the power of working within the party rather than against it. And he is doing more good for a restrained and responsible foreign policy than many others.
