What better face to have on the Republican party than this man. If there's a better choice I haven't thought of it.
Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele is being pulled in several directions -- to take over as the national leader of the Republican Party in two months, to take a Cabinet post in the Bush administration or to go into the private sector.
"No one from the White House or the Republican National Committee has formally offered me" the RNC chairmanship or a Cabinet post, Mr. Steele told The Washington Times yesterday.
Top national Republican leaders have told Mr. Steele they want him to succeed Ken Mehlman as RNC chairman in January and are discussing the move with White House chief political strategist Karl Rove.
