Karl Rove's sinister dream come true

I can't remember where I read this recently--perhaps one of you remembers--but Karl Rove's 2004 strategy was so simple it was brilliant: don't pick on the strongest Democratic challenger, pick on the next one down, the one the GOP could beat more easily.  This would make Democrats rally to the defense of the second one and make sure that the guy nominated wouldn't be too much to handle.

This isn't a secret.  If I read it somewhere then thousands, perhaps millions must also have read it.  That said, how is it possible that all the Bush Team's comments about Hillary Clinton aren't seen through this lens?

However, after eight years of Bush, I'd be willing to let even Bill Clinton back.
