Karl Rove Tells the Truth: Palin 'Not the Most Qualified'

Election '08

In a rare candid moment, Karl Rove admitted that Sarah Palin "is not the most qualified candidate" and that she was a "political pick." However, he added that he had no qualms about her ability to lead.


Speaking with the Associated Press after appearing at a health care conference in Orlando, Florida, the Republican puppeteer predicted, ""Nothing lasts for 60-some-odd days," Rove told The Associated Press. "Will she be the center of attention in the remaining 48 days? No, but she came on in a very powerful way and has given a sense of urgency to the McCain campaign that's pretty remarkable."


Maybe he'll disappear with Carly.
