Century of the Common Iowan: Nussle running for RNC chair

Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan

So it looks like Jim Nussle is really going to run to be the next
chair of the RNC. From the Politico (via Marc Ambinder)... "This White
House's formal link to the GOP's post-Bush era? Jim Nussle, director
of the Office of Management and Budget, plans to run for chairman of
the Republican National Committee." … This tells me that Nussle isn't
done in Iowa politics. He could be RNC chair for a few years and then
possibly use that stature to run for Harkin's Senate seat in 2014 (or
maybe even Grassley's in 2010 if Grassley retires and Iowa Republicans
can't find an adequate replacement). No longer would Nussle be the
former Congressman who lost a bid for Governor, but he would be a
former RNC chair that had spent time working in the White House.
