Credit Where It's Due
When the GOP held its internal election for national chairman, I thought Michael Steele was the best guy running, and I was pleased when Steele was selected. I'd heard him speak a few times in the past, and had been impressed. Like a lot of others, I was considerably less impressed with the way Steele handled himself over the next few months, but I have to give credit where it's due today: this speech by Steele last night is very good stuff. If Steele can stick to this script, and if his party can hew to the principles he enumerates, they're going to be able to get up off the mat and contend again.
Of course, those are two monumentally big "ifs," but at least it's a start.
