Ron Paul as Romney's Veep?

He would have to violate every principle he's held the last 30 years in office in order to serve as a glorified Romney front-man, and I don't think he will. Nor should he. He should continue his interruption of things by running as an independent if he fails to get the Republican nomination. If he accepts a Romney invite for veep, he'll lose his entire libertarian base, include yours truly. The thought makes me sick, really.
