Michael Steele may run for governor of Maryland

By Richard K. Barry

I do understand that former RNC Chairman Michael Steele has tried to rehabilitate his image by appearing somewhat reasonable on the occasional MSNBC broadcast. Rachel Maddow talks to him like he's an individual of some integrity and we're suppose to buy that.

Now we hear that he is thinking about running for governor in his home state of Maryland.

The Hill:

"We're looking at it," Steele told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd on Monday. "You're going to take a look at the numbers. Maryland's a tough state, there are a lot of challenges there."

Martin O'Malley, the current governor, is having his own look at the presidency in 2016, but has to move on in 2014 due to term limits.
Steele had a rocky term as RNC chairman, with the organization frequently producing negative headlines about lavish spending. He lost his chairmanship to Reince Priebus in 2011, despite overseeing massive Republican gains in the 2010 election cycle.

My favourite Michael Steele moment has to be his claim that Afghanistan was a "war of Obama's choosing." Yes, there's a man I want to see leading a state government.
