PREDICTION: Michael Steele will win RNC Chair

posted by Aziz Poonawalla

Twitter is THE source for following the RNC Chair vote right now. And in a shocking upset, Mike Duncan and Michael Steele are tied in the second round of voting. You can follow the debate in real time via twitter search on the #rncchair hashtag.

My prediction is that Michael Steele will be RNC Chair. Republicans like him, and Christine Todd Whitman (whose essay on the Republicans being a party of solutions, not ideology, was excellent), are the way for the party to become politically relevant again. The “Palinist” wing of the GOP is going to go into a paroxysm of anger if Steele wins, but such splenetic conservatives are more harm than help.

@PatrickRuffini is probably the best person to keep tabs on right now. Developing… stay tuned.

    “The ‘Palinist’ wing of the GOP is going to go into a paroxysm of anger if Steele wins …”
    Sorry, but I’m afraid you don’t know what you’re talking about.
    I like Sarah Palin and I hope that Michael Steele is elected chair of the GOP. “Extreme conservtives,” “moderate conservatives” and just-plain “conservatives” — along with everyone else in the GOP — will be happy to follow Michael Steele’s leadership of the Republican Party.
    “Paroxysm of anger”? Please avoid trite and hackneyed phrases and stale, conventional thinking.

    The Palin-supporters will merely shrug. The Oreo-throwers will be rending their hair.
