Shane and Josh are joined by a special guest, NPR White House Correspondent Tamara Keith, to talk about the second candidate to officially join the race, Rand Paul, and the mess he's already made in handling the media. Ted Cruz, meanwhile, may have received the best news this week when his supporters announced that a group of supportive super PACs have already raised $31 million. Plus, Bill Clinton is stepping out of the shadows with a strategic interview in Town and Country magazine, and all is still quiet on the Marco Rubio front -- despite expectation of his announcement to run next week. Also: Why don't any of the Republicans running for president use their real names?
