GOP post mortem today and other thoughts. 6 November, 2008

According to the Wall Street Journal,

The Republican Party begins debating its future Thursday in Virginia, where a group of leading conservatives will meet to discuss how to rebuild their movement. Party governors continue the conversation at a meeting next week in Miami.

Thus begins a battle for the soul of a party whose coalition has been fractured by war and economic turmoil after nearly three decades of electoral success.


Personally I would like us to start by choosing Michael Steele as National Chairman, then adopt the American solutions platform. After that we can argue over the endless details. Karl Rove did not want someone independent in the RNC for 2007 to 2009. That was his big mistake in an otherwise fine career. Now we need a titular head of the party like the Democrats had with Dean. No one available would fill that role better than Lt. Gov. Steele. He is a genius at party building. I hope our Delaware delegation to the RNC seriously promotes this choice.

Congratulations to President elect Obama. As an African American, I am gladen by the message sent in this election. After 250 years of slavery when only 3/5ths of our number were even worth counting, 100 years of segregation (only ending during my parents generation), we are undeniably full partners in the American experience. May God bless this wonderful country. We are not afraid to move beyond the past and into the future.

Let us do so with wisdom, not abandoning our best traditions of free markets, family values, and freedom. That is what we shall stand for here regardless of who is in office.
