Whatever one's view of the Republican Party, the following news must be worrying. There were four candidates to lead the party, including former leader Michael Steele. Steele then bowed out of the contest leaving just three remaining. It then took not one, not two, not three, and definitely not four nor five certainly not six, but yes seven rounds of voting before Reince Priebus won election. Details here. The several rounds of voting suggests strongly that party leaders were clearly split evenly and there was certainly no clear front runner -- if there was one, then he or she might have won in the second or third round...not seventh round. Clearly, President Obama will benefit from such divided leadership. Who's excited about the next presidential election?
The Brooks Blog is calling the 2012 US Presidential election early.....for Obama. You saw it here first!
