Finally, some good news...

...the RNC has offered Ken Mehlman's job to Michael Steele. Michael Steele is very charismatic, and ran an excellent campaign for a Senate seat from Maryland. Take it away, Washington Times,
Mr. Steele is one of the most successful and respected black Republicans in the country. He served as the elected Maryland Republican Party chairman before running for lieutenant governor.
The White House, RNC and National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) were pleased with what they called his tough but dignified performance as senatorial candidate in a liberal state that last elected a Republican senator in 1980. The NRSC had enough confidence in him as a candidate that it directed large amounts of money into independent expenditures on behalf of his campaign in the closing days.
Any Republican who runs a close race state-wide in a liberal state like Maryland is someone we need to hear more from.
He hasn't taken the job yet. Word is he may be holding out for a cabinet post. He'd be much more valuable at the RNC.
