Rand Paul talks 2016 prospects

(CNN) - Is Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky laying the groundwork for a 2016 presidential bid?

That was the question Wednesday from CNN's Erin Burnett, who cited Paul's new super PAC "Rand PAC." It began running television ads this week calling for the elimination of foreign aid.

Tune to CNN for Thursday's vice presidential debate coverage starting at 7 p.m. ET on CNN TV, CNN.com and via CNN's apps for iPhone, iPad and Android. Web users can become video editors with a new clip-and-share feature that allows them to share favorite debate moments on Facebook and Twitter.

"At least you don't have to change the name of the PAC or anything if you switch what you're running for," Burnett said as she closed the interview.

"You may be right there," the Kentucky lawmaker said.

    Why would the GOP not parade another freak show of candidates in the primary like they did this past year?
    Rand Paul is well quailified to drive the clown car. And his dad could be the clown-co-pilot! hahahahaha......

    If he becomes a lifelong politician like his father, he'll be able to run at least 3 times. At least it will help us identify how many people have built bunkers in their backyards.
