Will Ron Paul accept an invitation to join the Libertarian ticket?

In an open letter today, Libertarian party presidential nominee Bob Barr asked Ron Paul to be his running mate. Yes, the same GOP candidate who has legions of followers (Dan's a fan) and who won 35 delegates in the primaries.

Barr wrote today:

"While you declined my offer to seek the Libertarian presidential nomination many months ago, I ask that you seriously consider this final offer as an opportunity to show true, lasting leadership beyond party politics."

Wonder what effect that ticket would have on the two major parties.
