« Will Young Voters Help Karl Rove Create a Raw Deal Coalition? | Main | Rice for President? No Way. »

Well, if that's not a "flood the zone" play, I don't know what is.

This is a clear-cut case of the loyalty payoff. She goes from news reader to the Governor's then President's political aide, to having too much of Washington and going home, to getting hauled out to help Bush with another too-close election, to this? The Margaret Tutwiler Endowed Chair at the State Dep't.

If I didn't know any better, I'd say that with this move, the Rice-to-State move, Rove getting an official title, and a casting off of the less sycophantic of last terms cabinet, Bush is adopting something of a seige mentality by surrounding himself with his most loyal advisors--they who would never desert him, no matter what. "Karen, Karl, Condi! You won't leave me, will you? You'll keep them away, right?"

The selection of Hughes is particularly odious. Once when asked what she thought was Bush's greatest fault, she actually answered, "I think his biggest fault is that he is too good to be president."

Makes one shudder.

Can I get the email address of Karen Hughes so that I may write to her directly.
