A few weeks ago GOP leader Michael Steele made headlines when he became the first African American head of the Republican Party. He also caused a bit of controversy by saying he was "planning an 'off the hook' public-relations offensive to attract younger voters, especially blacks and Hispanics, by applying the party's principles to urban-suburban hip-hop settings".
