Maybe, but I doubt it.
Though I really don't see how he'd get past the Republican primaries. He has already p*ssed off Republicans immensely, and that is before they even bothered to find out his actual beliefs.
At the time of his election to RNC chairman, on his website Steele said that not only was he a beneficiary of Affirmative Action but that he believed it was a good thing and should continue. He also said that Roe v. Wade should remain in place. And he also said that gay marriage was an inevitability, and Republicans should just accept that and jump to the forefront of gay rights.
And why did he believe Republicans should jump to the forefront of gay rights, rather than try to delay it as long as possible, as most other Republicans are wont to do? Well, Steele said that he believed the main reason that Republicans have such trouble attracting the black vote is because they had allowed the Democrats to move to the forefront of the civil rights movement. And the reason Republicans have such trouble with Hispanics now is because of how vitriolic and hate-filled Republicans allowed themselves to become in the immigration debate (his words, not mine). And so if Republicans were to hang onto any chance at the youth vote and not lose the next generation, they would have to move to the forefront of gay rights; since almost all support for allowing gay people to marry is coming from younger voters.
How Republicans EVER decided to let Steele be put in charge is beyond me. I like him myself, but I'm a Democrat. Steele disagrees with Republicans on every major social issue that matters to them. Which makes you wonder why they elected him to a position of real power after 2008, but not before...
But I digress. The point is, I doubt black people would get a chance to decide, because I really don't see Steele getting past the primaries. I believe Rush Limbaugh would block that nomination.
But I really don't see Joe Biden ever trying to run again. He is 69 years old. Obama is running again in 2012. So Biden's earliest chance to run would be in 2016 when he would be 76 years old. Considering how he attacked McCain for being too old at 72 years old, I really don't see how Biden could really get anywhere.
