Man Behind the Furor (washingtonpost.com)
“Even though the White House has said Rove wasn’t involved, Wilson made clear yesterday that he has no intention of backing off from his assertion that Rove at least condoned someone’s making telephone calls to reporters about his wife.

Start brainstorming the next attack!

A fine dissection of the story that Wesley Clark would have gone Republican if Karl Rove had returned his phone calls. Enough spin to make your head spin.
Welcome To Autumn, Alien Jesus Fambly.
Congressional Quarterly columnist Craig Crawford suggests that Wesley Clark’s campaign is just a front designed to let Hillary Clinton enter the race in November. Under this scenario, she takes over the Clark campaign organization sometime before November 21st (the filing deadline for the New Hampshire primary), and Clark becomes the VP candidate. It would certainly explain a lot.
