    If Steele Steps Down, Who Should Replace Him?

    As we all know, Steele is in hot water again as RNC chairman. Some people are calling for him to resign. Even if he does not, his term ends in January, and the next chairman will lead the republican party through the 2012 election. So either way, there needs to be a new chairman within 6 months. Who should it be? I will list some possibilities, but not not be limited by my list.

    Please be patient as I add poll options, this is going to take a few minutes.

    Edit: I used a few source to make this lists, but this is the primary one: Republicans' Dilemma: Michael Steele's Replacement. I now see that all the ones in my list are on this page even.

    It would not matter one wit to you in that you don't want to se Conservatives in power. So the question is academic to the Left.

    Yes, it is academic for me. However, I did not try and make this a partisan thing, I listed honest choices that I got from republican sources and pundits. There is nothing wrong with being curious about things like this. So, who would you like to see replace him when the time comes?

    Newt or Fred Thompson would be my "off the top of my head" choices. JC Watts if he WANTED the job would be another.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: If Steele Steps Down, Who Should Replace Him?

    I like Newt too. But, he is too close to Hillary and old school dems would not allow him to become effective.

    Other than that, I don't see a true bonified "Republican" on the list. LOL

    IMHO, it should be Gingrich. He has too much baggage to get elected to public office now, but he is still a political genius. Working behind the scenes, he could do wonders to get the Republican Party moving in the right direction once more. Look what he did with the Contract with America, which led to the Republican takeover of Congress in 1994..

    Absolutely, and some of the poll choices, such as Limbaugh, are ludicrous, to put it mildly.

    I'm against putting someone in that position that I couldn't vote for. It almost seems hypocritical in a way.

    I would support Huckabee only because he stood a great chance at the throne last time around, and he has a very sound economic/domestic strategy. Is he a bit of a Bible-thumper? Yeah, but I've seen worse. He'd be much better than Paul. Even though I agree with a lot of his policies, Ron Paul plays the "cantankerous old man" part even when he doesn't mean to. He's not the face of a fund-raiser. Conversely, Huckabee has gubernatorial experience which I consider absolutely vital. After all, in my list of the five best presidents of the last 100 years, four of them were former governors (Kennedy being the only one with Senatorial experience instead of gubernatorial). Huckabee is a former pastor, which gives him conservative credibility. He's reasonably fresh-faced and good-looking (for a Republican). He's incredibly likeable. He's even had weekly rental space on Fox News for a while (much longer than Palin).

    He seems like the best choice for me.
