"A moral obligation to win?" How is winning anything a moral obligation? Voices heard, a mantra for ultra conservatives, could also cause them problems in the future because there seems to be more talking, shouting, and ranting, than providing workable solutions to problems.

I wish this bright and brash young man all the good fortune in the world in his pursuits and aspirations. But along with a confident manner and approach, I would advise him not to neglect gaining wisdom (not just education). In our world, wisdom is sorely lacking and needed.

I appreciate his inovolvement and fervor. Would that all Americans were so involved.

That said, I am saddened that his political aspirations seem to be right in line with exactly what is wrong with our two-party system: The only thing that is important is winning the next election and staying in power. He cites fundraising figures 2 years before the Presidential Election. No impetus for change, only that Republicans win at all cost. Sorry, son, looks like the Borg has assimilated you. Try this on: Rage against the Machine!

A lifelong Republican, I would endorse Tom Schultz as new RNC chairman, as he seems to have the energy, passion, and a conservative approach...one glaring frustration I have with the RNC is their not having helped unseat Matheson in Utah with funds and support.

Hey Tex, his statement was that he wants to get conservatives elected. There is a difference between a rhino republican and a conservative republican.
He seems like a bright young man and I hope he makes his mark in the political arena.
Thumbs up to Mr. Shultz.

Occasionally that "moral obligation" to win and stuff like that has resulted in people in jail- hope he knows where the line is- problem is winning and Wash. DC can be a little intoxicating- granted he is from BYU and so I am sure he knows where all the lines are and certainly can avoid the intoxicating part because no BYU student would ever cross the line- well except in that little Watergate thing but hey that was not all about moral obligation and winning now was it

As I read the comments it appears some may have missed the point of the article.

I have known Tom since he was a youth. As his scout leader and eagle mentor I found a youth that when he put his mind to a task he was almost unstoppable.

I have worked with him and watched as he put together a winning game plan to help get his brother elected Sec of State in Iowa against an established incumbent with great name recognition.

Tom's secret to success is that he just out works everybody.

This is a young man who will be successful at whatever he chooses to do in life.

He has his priorities right and his life in order.

You think there is never a "moral obligation" to win? You must have loved the Viet Nam War! Truth is that the only races worth winning are those in which there is a moral obligation to win. . . as in Prop 8.

Shultz has it right; don't get hung up on electing Republicans; elect Conservatives. They are the only politicians who understand the "moral obligation" to win . . . for the unborn, for marriage, for religious liberty, for the Constitution.

Michael Steele has become a great embarrassment to the GOP and his gall in seeking re-election manifests his refusal to understand the great harm he has done the party. Many thoughtful and engaged people have withheld contributions to the RNC because of Steele's profligacy with party funds. I say right on with Schulz's endeavors. Is there not a State party chairwoman from either Utah or Colorado running against him?

Satan's helpers, the Liberals, think they have a moral obligation to win. They stop at nothing to make millions of people lazy, entitled, enabled, and dependent spiritual babies. They are sucking the life out of self-reliant people who pay most of the taxes. Shultz is right. A moral win for him is a legitimate moral necessity to stop the growth of liberal parasites. Go Shultz!
