So it Begins.... 

The "Hillary can win the primary, but not the general election" meme. From Drudge:

**World Exclusive**

President Bush and his top strategist, Karl Rove, say Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will be tough to beat in the Democratic presidential primaries of 2008 -- but not in the general election!


Reporter Bill Sammon, who joins the WASHINGTON EXAMINER as Senior White House Correspondent, is set to launch his new book, STRATEGERY.

In the Book, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned, Rove is quoted on the-record and is unleashed on Hillary:

There is a “brittleness about her” that could prove a weakness in November 2008.

But Rove added that the “hard-driving” Clinton will easily vanquish Democratic primary rivals like New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner, who are merely “preening for the vice presidential slot.”

I have heard it already, but just wait to hear that over and over from the "liberal media", then expect to hear the self-fulfilling prophecy from your local democrats.

For one thing, I don't believe that Rove (maybe Bush, because he's an idiot) would diminish Mark Warner so easily. I just had dinner with a good friend of mine, who's head of Catholic outreach at the RNC, and he says they are SCARED TO DEATH of Mark Warner. What scares them is that everyone has already accepted that Warner is a "moderate" and works "with both parties", but also, Warner's blank slate in foreign policy. Some may take that as a weakness, but with a blank slate, he can say whatever he wants. I like Richardson, and once used a urinal next to him (that's probably too much information), but even with his experience, I don't know if I see him as anything more than VP. Warner on the other hand, watch out Hillary.
