GOP future: Backlash against Duncan?

The Washington Post writes, "With six candidates competing for the party's helm at the winter meetings this week, some committee members are determined to remove the current RNC chairman, Mike Duncan, who is seen as a candidate of the status quo at a time when they want to sever all ties to the former president. Duncan has held the office since 2007, when he ran unopposed after Bush chose him for the post."

More: "In a further sign that the group wants to signal its displeasure with Bush policies, members are expected to adopt an unprecedented resolution attacking 'the bloated bank bailout bill' that Bush championed and demanding that the committee 'take all steps necessary to oppose bailouts of industries, individuals or governments.' The resolution also calls for strong opposition to the stimulus plan before Congress, which it labels 'President-elect Obama's public-works program.'"
