Michael Steele is an incredible speaker. I was fortunate enough to hear him a couple of weeks ago in North Carolina and was mightily impressed. In the speech he gave he made the point that in his years attending Democrat functions he noticed they offered lots of hope, but that Republicans offered opportunity. Now he is urging the GOP presidential candidates to talk not about hope in their upcoming debate, but to talk about their plan for action. It is really good advice. I know that Fred Thompson ruled out being a VP, but as far as I know Steele hasn’t.
