Mr. Paul, in an interview, said convention planners had offered him an opportunity to speak under two conditions: that he deliver remarks vetted by the Romney campaign, and that he give a full-fledged endorsement of Mr. Romney. He declined.

“It wouldn’t be my speech,” Mr. Paul said. “That would undo everything I’ve done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for president.”

Unlike the reporter from a few days ago, Paul refuses. Given all the current divisiveness leading up to the RNC, i can understand why Romney wanted to check what Paul would say, but props to Paul for refusing to take the bait.

The only real politician left in Washington. That's a fact.
