    RNC's Steele Ends Re-Election Bid

    FoxNews.com - Steele Bows Out of Race for RNC Chief
    WASHINGTON -- Beleagured GOP Chairman Michael Steele on Friday dropped his bid to stay atop the party for another two years after falling further behind top challenger Reince Priebus in several rounds of voting.

    "At this time, I will step aside for others to lead," Steele told RNC members at the Gaylord Resort in National Harbor, Md. "But in so doing, I hope y'all appreciate the legacy we leave. Depsite the noise -- because Lord know we had a lot of noise -- despite the difficulties, we won."

    Steele got a standing ovation after his announcement following a tenure marked by controversy and embarrassment despite huge Republican gains in the fall. Steele is now urging supporters to vote for former RNC Deputy Chairwoman Maria Cino.
    Not a huge deal. It was certainly time for a change.

    Well historically and currently, if I remember correctly, being the chairperson of the party is a rather short affair for most people (2-4 years), sometimes shorter than that (by choice or by pressure).

    Or is it that the RNC is looking for something a little less different?

    Let he/she who is without sin cast the first stone. What neighborhood in SF do you live in. Hunter's Point? Tenderloin? Russian Hill? Inner Richmond. The white leftists of SF don't mix racially except with Asians. I live diversity. Few San Franciscans do.
