Steele on Thin Ice [rdbrewer]

Republican National Committee members are set to vote in two months.

A significant bloc of Republican National Committee members wants embattled chairman Michael Steele to step aside, but the rank and file have failed to settle on a clear alternative, according to Associated Press interviews with committee members.

More than four dozen interviews with members of the 168-member central committee found fear that a badly damaged Steele could emerge from the wreckage of a knockdown, drag-out fight to head the party as it challenges President Barack Obama in 2012. While most agree that Steele's time has been rough — and costly — the members also recognize that a leadership fight could overshadow gains that Republicans made in the midterm elections.

For the same reasons Steele's leadership was "rough and costly," we're looking at a leadership fight. Because it's all about Michael Steele. And since it's all about Michael Steele, there is little hope he will bow out and spare the party a leadership battle. After all, it's his time to shine.
