RE: [RLC-Action] Re: RNC Chairman
I was there also, and I thought he gave an excellent speech. The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend; and the friend of my enemy is not necessarily my enemy. Although I would prefer someone who will prefer our caucus, I think we should look for the person most open to work with us. Wasn't it you who wrote we should follow the 80% rule?

I had thought Ken Blackwell was acceptable having heard a very good
speech from him at the AFP conference in DC, but he just received the
endorsement of Eagle Forum, and IMO anyone they endorse we should openly
condemn as a matter of principle.

We can't get a libertarian RNC chairman without first having a significant
number of county and state GOP chairmen. We need to trickle up. We are doing a
bit in this direction, but it is a long term task. We need to learn who are
the fair-weather fiscal conservatives and who are the real free marketers, and
then support the latter at all levels of the GOP organizations.
