Rove Keeps Up Heat on Clinton

CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) -- Master GOP strategist Karl Rove won't let up in his attacks on Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton, but the intriguing question is why.
Is it a sign that Rove, who masterminded Bush's two presidential victories, is worried about Clinton? Or a calculation that the GOP attacks will get Democrats to rally to her side because the GOP would prefer not to take on Democrats John Edwards or Barack Obama?
''The Democrats are going to choose a nominee. I believe it's going to be her,'' President Bush's departing political adviser said Sunday, noting her negative rating with the public is very high.
He appeared on three Sunday talk shows after announcing last week he was leaving the White House at the end of the month to spend more time with his family.
Asked why he was helping Clinton by saying she would headline the ticket, Rove said: ''Didn't know that I was. Don't think that I am.''
Then he harshly criticized Clinton, saying more people have an unfavorable than favorable opinion of the New York senator and former first lady.
