The Republican House Conference recently held in Baltimore, was a human chess game. President Barack Obama scored a checkmate! No speeches, no teleprompter, no notes just one brilliant man, proving point after point after point. The republicans underestimated the president when they agreed to have the conference televised. As he stated when proposing to put the earmarks online before a vote is taken, "sunshine is the best disinfectant."
The Republican National Committee just named Michael Steele chairman.
He says it is, "Time for something different."
Sounds like he can recharge a spent party. Now this is a change that gives me hope.
