Where Are They Now?

The voter's rejection of their administration in November left Gov. Bob Ehrlich and Lt. Gov. Michael Steele unemployed. But both men have children - and Steele a dog - they need to feed, so retirement isn't an option for either.

Ehrlich is off to New York today to meet with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani about a role in Giuliani's presidential bid, The Washington Times reports. Nothing's finalized, but The League thinks Ehrlich is the perfect match for Giuliani's campaign: Republican primary voters sure as hell aren't going to vote for a twice-divorced Manhattanite and Ehrlich has a bit of experience in losing.

Steele floated his own name as a possible pick to lead the Republican National Committee in a pathetic display of self-promotion that didn't pan out. But it turns out that now, while still officially Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, Steele is already diving into his new job as a pundit on CNN. The 24-hour news channel doesn't have anything about it on its website, but The League spotted Steele chatting about the issues of the day on the afternoon show The Situation Room. Steele is the perfect Talking Head: he can blather away for hours without saying anything of substance.

Good to see Maryland's Washed Up Politicos are getting on with their lives.

I'm actually a bit surprised that the GOP folks haven't found a spokesmodel kind of position for Steele.
