At first, I expected some sort of hit piece, especially given the cover of the New Republic which reads "The Real Rand Paul (Can't Be Trusted)". But then the article is actually headlined "President Rand Paul: Watch Out He's Becoming a Better Politician Every day" and is actually pretty positive. It tracks Rand Paul's evolution over the years and how he is both pragmatic and principled at the same time and is able to appeal to many more people than his father ever was. It really is a must read piece. I don't say that often about anything in the New Republic.
