Howard Fineman: Rove May Not Be Able To Rescue McConnell
In his latest Newseek online column, Howard Fineman notes McConnell is taking direct orders from Karl Rove. Fineman, a former Kentucky resident and expert on the state's political scene says:
"With presidential approval ratings at historic lows, with voters supporting a timetable for withdrawal by a clear majority, with the GOP’s brand name melting faster than an Alaskan glacier, what could McConnell & Co. be thinking? Short answer: whatever Rove tells them to...
But even in Kentucky, there’s a limit to patience. The Screaming Eagles may not be able to rescue him."
