Hillary Says Rove "Obsesses" About Her; Schumer "Easy," Clinton "Hard To Get"- For Talk Shows That Is

Sen. Hillary Clinton told an Albany radio station today she thinks President Bush's top political advisor Karl Rove "spends a lot of time obsessing about me." (We presume she meant in a political sort of way.)

The Associated Press reported the Senator's comments were in response to extensive quotes attributed to Rove in a new book about the president.

The Drudge Report posted extensive quotes from the book, Strategery - by Bill Sammon, which hit the bookshelves today. Among some of the more intertesting points, Rove says Clinton is pretty much a shoo-in to win the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2008 but will be very beatable in the general election. He described Clinton as having a "brittleness about her" that could be a negative for her in 2008.


We said we'd stay away from polls for a while, but this one doesn't involve any numbers and turns up some interesting results about our two Senators from New York.

TV Week.com surveyed the staffs of the various Sunday morning political talk shows and found that of all politicians in Washington, Sen. Charles Schumer is the easiest to get to go in front of the cameras, saying he is "drawn like a moth to the red light on a TV camera." I guess it would follow that Schumer would be listed among the "most overexposed" and among those who are "too eager." Sen. Clinton and Vice President Dick Cheney were rated as the hardest to get. Clinton was also listed as the "highest maintenance" guest. She is said to carefully choose the questions she will submit to and has a "wall of advisors," making her difficult to get to. Clinton is also listed among those least likely to make news.
