Steele for GOP Chair

Rumers are flying that with Ken Mehlman stepping down from his post of RNC chair, that Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, the Senatorial Candidate from Maryland, is being asked to become the new chair. This would be a great move. Steele is well-spoken, conservative, and a stark contrast to Howard Dean. Having him as the face of the Republican Party. He ran a very effective and hard-fought campaign in Maryland, and despite his loss, remains someone who could make political waves in years to come.

You just beat me to this post by 10 minutes!

My point was generally the same. Mehlman got tossed because we lost under his watch and we’re in a party of personal responsibility that can admit when change is needed in our key personel.

I really like this move. Steele is articulate, approachable, and he has “gravitas”.

Look at the last two DNC chairs: McCullough and Dean– two nasty, unapproachable white dudes.

Look at the latest two (one potential) RNC chairs: Mehlman, who’s Jewish, and Steele who’s black. Now the right doesn’t make a big deal about this, but one party certain looks more diverse than the other at the highest levels. Just a thought.

I also endorse this choice…he ran some great ads during his campaign, had great ideas, shellacked Cardin in every debate and was brutally honest…and the libs are afraid of him; so much so that the Washington Compost ran a second editorial telling its readers in MD to not vote for him. He will be a strong leader and hopefully, will help the Republican Party return to its Conservative principles.
