Blogging From The Convention Floor - Michael Steele

I am in in the auditorium with the delegates (in the stands, not on the floor), and so far, I have a connection with which to blog. With any luck, I'll be able to live-blog the two keynote speakers for tonight's main event: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Laura Bush.

Right now, I'm watching the Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, Michael Steele. This man impresses the heck out of me. He connects to the audience in personal terms, but he easily charged up the crowd with a wonderful crescendo as he discussed his values and the values of the GOP. Completely at ease at the podium, he seems to be a man with a future in the party.

Steele works extensively in the media, both alternate and mainstream. He writes for such varied publications as the Washington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Washington Times, and more. He also appears on the radio in his own lunchtime radio show and has made a number of other radio and television shows. He's got the exposure and the talent to move to the first squad at his next opportunity. Keep an eye out for him.
