Michael Steele Wins It

It took six ballots and a lot of persistence, but Michael Steele has just become the first African-American to be chairman of the Replubilcan National Committee.

If you're prepared to be an obstructionist, "Get ready to be knocked over," Steele told a cheering crowd at the Capitol Hilton, moments after he defeated South Carolina Chairman Katon Dawson by a vote of 91 to 77.

Steele, a former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, referred to the GOP as a "conservative party" and promised Republicans could expect "something different."
