Michael Steele New Head of RNC

The Republican National Committee has selected Michael Steele, former Lieutenant Governor and recent Senate candidate from Maryland, as its new chairman. This is good news if you consider yourself a defender of the mission as set forth by the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. I've followed his political career since the late '90s. Expect to hear his name often in the future.

Interesting blog you’ve got here. Relevantly, Michael Steele, born 1958, is a member of Generation Jones--the generation between the Boomers and GenXers--which has now taken over as America’s new leaders. Obama, and many in the team he has assembled, are Jonesers. The GOP is now led by Jonesers as well, including Steele, Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty and Mark Sanford. I’m a Joneser and totally relate to this identity, and all the recent big-time national media attention about Generation Jones. We’re not Boomers or Xers! I’ve read several articles recently that make a strong case for learning more about Generation Jones to grasp the changes we can expect now in politics and leadership.

Steele embraces his GenJones identity, and speaks about the importance of the new Generation Jones leadership, in this short video:

There is an op-ed about exactly this topic in USA TODAY this week: .

I’m very curious to see what Steele’s early weeks at this new job will look like.

Thank you FeelsRight for your kind word about OTR and links to info about GenJones. Steele was a great choice. He should be a pleasure to watch early on as he brings new energy and focus to a tired party.
