He stepped aside today (after realizing he was about to lose the election) saying he thinks Americans are ready for something different.
RNC chairman Michael Steele removed himself from the race for his job today after steadily losing ground to his opponents in each round of balloting. "I will step aside," he said before the fifth ballot began, "because I think the party is ready for something different [and not because I am obviously going to lose]."
Maybe, just maybe, the RNC realizes exactly what that "something different" actually is.
I'm still skeptical and I want to see how this affects recruiting a pool of presidential candidates, but this has the potential to be really, really great news for the pro-life movement.
If only the DNC would do the same. (Miracles can happen.)
