Michael Steele was chairman of the RNC (Republican National Committee) from January, 2009, to January, 2011. He was defeated in his re-election attempt by Reince Priebus. I held a negative opinion of Steele because of what he said about Barack Obama. However, since he left the RNC, his expressed opinions have become, in my opinion, much more reasonable. According to Rachel Maddow, Steele’s record as chairman of the RNC was much more successful than that of Priebus. I have grown to like the guy. He is the kind of Republican that the party and the country need more of.
