The Next Right: What will Michael Steele do with the presidential primary calendar?

Excerpted from this post at The Next Right

The power of the chairman to impact the future of the party is, to a
degree, limited. Michael Steele will be able to attract a range of
people that other candidates may not have been able to. But there is
one area in which the Chairman's race for the Republican National
Committee will have significant power. He will pick the committee that
sets the next primary calendar. RNC rule 10(d), added this year,
creates a "Temporary Delegate Selection Committee" which Steele "shall
convene ... as soon as practicable after the 2009 Republican National
Committee Winter Meeting", at which he was elected.
