RNC members to Steele: Just go

This is not the level of support that a successful RNC Chairman gets:

In interviews with 51 committee members, 39 said they preferred Steele not be on the ballot when they meet near Washington in mid-January to pick their leader.

Steele's detractors have been planting stories — ranging from damaging to devastating — in the Washington press ever since Steele was elected RNC Chairman. Steele has survived all of that, but not because he has a large group of strong supporters.

There seem to be two main camps. First, there are the people who wanted him gone yesterday. Then there are the people who also wanted him gone yesterday, but preferred to wait until the election was over before getting rid of him.
