why apologize? rove has a history that i think will always make him a potential culprit. <blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>For example, in 1970, Rove infiltrated the campaign of Democrat Alan Dixon, who was running to be the Illinois state treasurer.<br><br>According to the book, Rove used Dixon's letterhead stationery to draft a fake invitation to the candidate's campaign headquarters for "free beer, free food, girls and a good time for nothing."<br><br>Rove "mailed 1,000 copies, even distributing it among skid-row bums," according to the bio.<br><br>His pranks drew the unwelcome attention of George H. W. Bush, who was then serving as chairman of the Republican National Committee.<br><br>Bush sent an FBI agent to question Rove after "the Washington Post's Watergate coverage maintained that a young politico named Karl Rove had conducted training sessions for College Republicans on the nuance and technique of Nixon-style dirty tricks," write the authors.<br><br>Rove is said to have owned up to the letter but denied holding training sessions.<p><hr></blockquote><p><a href="http://www.nydailynews.com/news/gossip/story/48055p-45186c.html">link</a><br><br>and<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Like Dick Cheney, he avoided the Vietnam draft with a college deferment, but gave up his education to work on Republican campaigns, and never got a degree. He launched his political career by wresting control of the College Republicans, a radical group in the Nixon era. It was an unpleasant business. In an interesting precursor to the Florida battle 17 years later, Rove took on his opponent, Robert Edgeworth, principally on procedural grounds - challenging the credentials of every single Edgeworth delegate to the1973 College Republican convention and putting forward a rival delegate.<br><br>The aggressive tactics won the 22-year-old Rove a walk-on role in the Watergate saga that was consuming the nation. A report was published in the Washington Post on August 10, 1973, titled "[Republican party] Probes Official as Teacher of Tricks", gave an account, based on tape recordings, of how Rove and a colleague had been touring the country giving young Republicans political combat training, in which they recalled their feats of derring-do, such as Rove's Chicago heist at the Dixon headquarters.<br><br>At the time, Rove claimed the tape had been doctored to exclude a warning to the audience not to try to emulate any of his past misdeeds. Others present simply remember a caution not to get caught. The publicity forced the intervention of the Republican National Committee and its chairman, a former Texas congressman clinging on to his political career: George Herbert Walker Bush. After considering the case, Bush Sr took action. He drove Edgeworth out of the party on suspicion of having leaked the tapes, and hired Rove, bringing him to Washington.<p><hr></blockquote><p><a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/uselections2004/story/0,13918,1165126,00.html">link</a><br><br>but, perhaps most alarming:<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>"I think it's an enormous position of power, and it's hard to overstate. I think he's unique in the modern presidency," says Lou Dubose, a Texan journalist and Rove biographer. Rove's office is tight-lipped about the extent of his duties, but the few un-vetted memoirs to have escaped from this highly disciplined administration have all portrayed him as the single most powerful figure in it, with the (possible) exceptions of the president and vice-president.<br><br>"Karl is enormously powerful, maybe the single most powerful person in the modern, post-Hoover era ever to occupy a political adviser post near the Oval Office," John DiIulio, a former presidential adviser, wrote in a notoriously frank email to a journalist from Esquire magazine, after resigning in 2001. "Little happens on any issue without Karl's OK, and often he supplies such policy substance as the administration puts out."<p><hr></blockquote><p><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
