Another story about how Karl Rove is a surprisingly adept television pundit. Wow! Everyone is shocked that Rove doesn't spit blood and cackle maniacally and speak in tongues when asked to opine in Hillary Clinton's political future! At least this one mentions conflicts of interest and how some nutcases view the increasingly fuzzy divide between 'journalism' and 'paid political consulting' as worrisome (or at least they did a decade ago when the Clintonites first made the leap). Still, there's this: "As an on-camera presence, Mr. Rove is not necessarily a natural. Neither his doughy chin nor his ashen complexion would be confused with those of, say, Brian Williams of NBC News." We can't all be as pretty as BriWi. [NYT]
