Newsweek Hires Karl Rove!

"Lord, what fools these mortals be!"---Puck (from William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream Act III, scene ii); Illustrated by Arthur Rackham

Newsweek has hired Karl Rove, the embattled former senior adviser and deputy chief of staff for President Bush, to be a Newsweek contributor.

In his first article, "How to Beat Hillary (Next) November" (11-26-07), Mr. Rove gives some free campaign advice to the future GOP nominee.

On the contentious issue of the war in Iraq, Mr. Rove advises:

Be strong on Iraq. Democrats have bet on failure. That's looking to be an increasingly bad wager, given the remarkable progress seen recently in Iraq. If the question is who will get out quicker, the answer is Hillary. The Republican candidate wants to recast the question to: who will lead America to victory in a vital battleground in the War on Terror? There will be contentious fights over funding the troops and over intelligence-gathering right after the parties settle on their candidates. Both battles will help the Republican candidate demonstrate who will be stronger in winning the new struggle of the 21st century.
