The Libertarian Kennedys

Politico has an interesting piece up this morning about the emerging Paul political dynasty--as in Ron Paul, Rand Paul, and now Robert Paul, another son of Ron's, who is considering a Senate run in Texas:

Four years after the family patriarch was mocked as a gadfly during his failed presidential bid--his second--the 75-year-old Paul is more recognizable than ever. And there are signs of a dynasty in the making, with his devoted following likely to be passed down to his children even if his White House hopes end with this election.
Politico dubs the Paul family "the libertarian Kennedys," a clever coinage if I do say so myself. And I did.
