I guess people don't remember when George W. Bush quit showing up to the Republican debates back in 2000. Romney would be under no obligation to meet Paul (or anyone else) in a debate.

The bound Paul supporters will be voting for Paul.
The unbound Romney supporters may vote for Paul.
The unbound Santorum votes will mostly vote for Paul.
This will all happen during the first vote.
Yeah....no.

The result would be that Paul, not Romney gets the most votes and wins the nomination.
Yeah....no.
