Sarah Palin is in Washington, DC for the Alfalfa Dinner. She will be meeting President Obama. I wonder how that conversation is going to go? I think it might be one step in here exploratory committee for 2012. She will probably expect that some of the money from the stimulus package will be going to Alaska. Then again maybe Obama is reluctant to give anything resembling pork money to the State of Alaska.
Also, Michael Steele was named RNC Chairman. He is the first African American elected to the post. In his 2006 Maryland Senate campaign he earned a lot of respect from both sides with his easy going style and polished and intelligent way of speaking. He gave Democrat Ben Cardin quite a scare but in the end it was in Maryland and they usually do well there. They also needed to hold the seat to attain their majority in 2006.
