How Big the Tent?

John Boehner bubbles that Ahn Cao, Vietnamese-American congressman from New Orleans, is the future of the Republican Party. Likewise Newt Gingrich: "This is the opposite of red-vs.-blue, base-mobilization politics." Meanwhile, African-American RNC chair wannabe Michael Steele rages against GOP conservatives who, in shutting him out, would shut out moderates:

They have been beating me upside the head with it and let me give it to you straight on: Wake up people. I mean what are you going to do? Are you going to kick these folks out of the party? I have watched this party self disintegrate for the last four or five years. I've watched this party isolate itself from itself.

Stay tuned.
