Ron Paul wishes we didn't worry about the primary calendar

I spoke with Ron Paul late yesterday afternoon. In the conversation, I asked him about the effort among New Hampshire Republican elected officials to get the presidential candidates to boycott the Nevada caucuses. He seemed only vaguely aware of it.

"I wish they didn't worry too much about this. But it is very important to the states," he said. "I think the states should make their decisions, and we have to make our decisions."

I explained why New Hampshire Republicans wanted the boycott.

"See, I don't follow that part of the politics as closely as some others do. I don't understand the difference between a seven-day interim and a four-day interim."

New Hampshire's state law requires seven days, i said.

"Well, I'm for obeying the law," he said.

But he wouldn't get behind the boycott.
