Despite pronouncements by pundits Michael Savage and Ann Coulter, Sen. Rand Paul’s height hasn’t thwarted him in the polls. Mr. Paul has strong numbers ahead of 2016. He looked fine on stage with taller men, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, and Sen. Cory Booker, New Jersey Democrat.

Mr. Paul was sworn in by Vice President Joe Biden and even played golf with Donald Trump. Sure, Mr. Paul’s height will be evident on the primary debate stage, but it won’t be an issue if he faces a certain woman in the general election.
