Paul Pushes Against His Father's Reputation

As Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) "test-markets a presidential candidacy and tries to broaden his appeal, he is also trying to take libertarianism, an ideology long on the fringes of American politics, into the mainstream," the New York Times reports.

"But if Mr. Paul reaps the benefits of his father's name and history, he also must contend with the burdens of that patrimony. And as he has become a politician in his own right and now tours the circuit of early primary states, Mr. Paul has been calibrating how fully he embraces some libertarian precepts."
