I can't say that there are any inherent flaws in Carville's analysis.  The one unknown at this point is 2014 and whether there is a ground shift in terms of congressional control.  I think there are some scenarios that could play out for Rand Paul, but it depends on him rallying two very different constituencies.  The first time Paul has to be specific, he is going to be in trouble.  Basically, it will come down to two players: one with money, and a challenger who has survived the early primaries and managed to gather a cult of supporters.

Usually, the money wins in the long run, but not always.  Remember Phil Gramm?
