Congressman and Republican presidential aspirant Ron Paul says it's wrong for candidates in the GOP field to cater to Donald Trump as if he were some kind of GOP deity.
I think Paul gets it right.
When GOP candidates rush to catch a bit of the Trump spotlight or make time to meet with him, they look more like they're auditioning for The Apprentice rather than running for president. Democrats will enjoy mocking these moves now through November 2012. And with good reason.
Trump's a guy who sent a congratulatory note to Nancy Pelosi when she rose to be Speaker of the House.
