There is a question on the lips of Paul supporters everywhere that’s not going away. Will he run for President in 2016? There’s one person who doesn’t want Paul for president and that unfortunately is his wife, Kelley. It’s not too surprising that he’s having trouble getting that one vote. After all, knife-deep character assassination is the standard fare of every presidential election. Most people cave when one bad thing is said about them but when you have an entire nation — whew.
This is not the first time a wife has had the final say. The CSMonitor reminds readers that even Colin Powell’s wife wasn’t too thrilled about a possible run for the presidency. And can you blame them? The closer we get to November, the sharper and more brutal the targeting gets in today’s political environment.
“In this day and age it’s mostly about character assassination,” Kelley said in Vogue. “When I think of the tens of millions of dollars in opposition research that they’d be aiming right at us and our family – that’s what it’s about.”
On “Fox News Sunday,” Mr. Paul said he was worried about the toll a run could have on himself and his family. He said he was “seriously thinking about” running for president, but was also “very serious” about family considerations. He said: You know, just look at what happens daily to any politician in America. And you talk about how uncivil things are. I mean, they really are, and they do take a toll on family.”
He added: “I really am going [to] keep doing the things that I am doing — trying to help fight for jobs in Kentucky, as well as across America, and I’ll just keep doing the things that I want to do and I think the people of Kentucky elected me to do, and I’m just not ready to make a decision yet,” Mr. Paul said.

So is that a firm, no takebacks ‘no’ on Paul for President? Maybe not. Ron Paul, his dad, is saying otherwise. He’s probably going to receive a rock hard fruitcake from Kelley this year.
