Whatever Happened to Rand Paul?

A year ago, Rand Paul was the most exciting Republican politician in the country. He was building a presidential campaign around his brand of libertarian Republican politics that, while not exactly making him a frontrunner for his party's presidential nomination in 2016, made him a credible candidate. Mr. Paul's belief that the U.S. should be less engaged in every corner of the world, coupled with his views on personal freedoms, enabled him to stand out from the rest of the Republican pack.
