This is a shocker. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) wins the straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in D.C.

For Paul, this is huge, a major boost if indeed he wants to run for president. Though glasses of champagne will not be clinking at the Federal Reserve Board in Washington!

For conservatives, this creates a potential 2010 primary donnybrook if Paul chooses to run.

There have always been two strains of true populism in American politics. On the progressive side there are leaders such as Howard Dean. On the conservative side there are authentic conservatives such as Ron Paul. Neither President Barack Obama nor the banking and Wall Street Republicans are legitimate populists, and Sarah Palin is a polyester populist compared to Ron Paul!

Congratulations to Ron Paul for his stunning and well-earned victory at the conservative meeting. Paul is a true conservative in the classic sense who enriches our national debate and is respected by friends and foes alike.
