As someone who does not think Newt Gingrich has a snowball’s chance in hell of winning a Presidential election but is a great leader who has a history of reform in the right direction, I believe that now is the time for Gingrich to take the reigns of the RNC. He has the ability to raise money, the talent to run a major organization, and the foresight (and hindsight) to see what the country needs and how to bring it to fruition.
I like Michael Steele, but I do not believe that he is the man to lead us out of this great hole. He hasn’t shown the knack for reform that Gingrich has and was one of the candidates who lost in 2006. If he couldn’t get himself elected in the current political climate, what do we have that suggests he could bring the party out of this hole? Newt has done it before and he can do it again. Now is the time for Newt and I encourage all members of the RNC to support him as the next RNC Chairman.
