Ron Paul Campaigning for President

During an interview with ABC’s Terry Moran on Monday, GOP presidential contender Ron Paul made an astounding admission. When asked by Moran if, “When you lay your head on your pillow at night, do you see yourself in the Oval Office?” Paul responded simply: “Not really.”

The Texas congressman went on to say that while he’s aware of his odds, they are “not as slim as they were 25 years ago.”

Moran, who finds it “hard to imagine any other candidate saying that,” adds:

I also asked if he though he was too old to be president. He’d be 81 at the end of his first term.

He said, “Freedom is a youthful idea,” his health is good, and he challenges any of his rivals to a physical fitness test.

He also jokingly accused me of ageism.

“Be careful,” he said. “There are laws against that.”

While the congressman’s chances at claiming the Republican nomination may be slim, his revelation is perhaps untimely given that there is a good chance he could exceed expectations in Tuesday’s Iowa caucuses.
