It is quite possible that the ulterior motive of this advice might be to derail Senator Clinton because Karl Rove thinks she is harder to beat with the current crop of Republican candidates! It will be interesting to see if Senator Obama takes up this advice in the coming weeks.
Check out Karl Rove’s advice to Obama in the Finanical Times. You can hate this guy with all your heart and blame him for all the problems faced by the Republican party and the current administration, but you got to admit that when it comes to political strategy (especially short-term) he is simply the best in the business. His advice to Obama is hard-hitting, tough and absolutely on the money.
