Rove on Whether Palin Would Be 'a Good President': 'I Don’t Know'

Election '08

During a speech at the Fraser Institute in Canada last night, a Toronto businessman asked former Bush political adviser Karl Rove "if he thought Sarah Palin would make a good President." Rove's response? "I don't know":

Last night, he did party spin but said something significant. A Toronto businessman asked him if he thought Sarah Palin would make a good President. "I don't know," said Rove.

Rove made headlines earlier this month when he declared that Palin was a "political pick." Before that, he told the Washington Post's Chris Cillizza that Palin "was not a governing decision, but a campaign decision."
