Steele for VP?

Andrew Langer, Eastern Shore resident and president of the Institute for Liberty, makes a persuasive argument for John McCain selecting former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele as the GOP vice-presidential nominee. The political argument is quite compelling for Pennsylvania and other rust-belt states.

I would argue that the experience argument, that will be used heavily against Obama, would also be used to savage Steele. While I admire Steele, I believe that others would do a better job nationwide in rallying conservatives to the cause while aiding in the electoral map.

Regardless, kudos to Langer for some excellent "out-of-the-box" thinking.

Michael Steele said last night that he wouldn't be in Ohio today when McCain makes his announcement. I am a Steele fan too, and think we would have a hard time finding someone as good, or better.

Think in terms of Governor Steele and Senator Ehrlich
