RNC Head Ken Mehlman Stepping Down

Just hot off CNN.com:

Quote:
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman announced he is going to step down at the end of the year.

The White House is already searching for a replacement or replacements to lead the party into the 2008 presidential campaign cycle, sources tell CNN.

Two sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Mehlman has made clear to close associates for some time he was likely to leave after the 2006 elections -- and that there is no dissatisfaction with his performance in the midterm cycle.

One name that has come up as a possible replacement is outgoing Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, who just lost a U.S. Senate race.

One of the sources, though, said a more likely scenario is for Steele to join the Bush administration in another capacity after the first of the year when a few members of the Bush Cabinet and other senior officials are expected to leave.

One scenario under discussion, should Mehlman leave, according to two of the sources, is to split the RNC leadership duties, a model both parties have used at times in the past.

Under this approach, a party operative would be brought in to run day-to-day affairs, and a prominent Republican, most likely a former officeholder, would be named general chairman.

The name most talked about to run the day-to-day operation in such an approach is Maria Cino, a veteran Republican strategist who currently serves as deputy transportation secretary.
First Rummy, now Mehlman... Republicans are cleaning house?
This is the guy who did the whole get out the vote drives back in the '04 election... quite successful, so why get rid of him now? Is it because he wanted to leave or is there something other than that? Not insinuating anything, just wondering. I thought that since I saw it on CNN, I'd let the good people of FYM know.

They're scared, plain and simple. They know they've coasted through on fear and lies for the last few elections.

Thats always what a certain group of Dems say any time a long string of Republican wins comes to an end. Lots of that same crap was voiced back in November 1992.

Or we could state it the way you always do: the American people have spoken, and they no longer agree with you. Sorry.

You're own words, not mine.

and now
the end is near
and so i face
the final curtain



my friend
i'll say it clear
i'll state my case
of which i'm certain



i've lived
a life that's full
i've travelled each
and every highway



and much
much more than this
i did it
my way

regrets
i've had a few
but then again
too few to mention



i did
what i had to do
and saw it through
without exemption



i planned
each charted course
each careful step
along the byway



but much
much more than this
i did it
my way

yes there were times
i'm sure you knew
when i bit off
more than i could chew



but through it all
when there was doubt
i ate it up
and spit it out



i faced it all
and i stood tall
and did it
my way

i've loved
i've laughed and cried
i've had my fill
my share of losing



and now
as tears subside
i find it all
so amusing



to think
i did all that
and may i say
not in a shy way



no
oh no not me
i did it
my way

for what is a man
what has he got
if not himself
then he has naught



to say the things
he truly feels
and not the words
of one who kneels
the record shows
i took the blows



and did it
my way
