Daily YouTube: Karl Rove in 1972, Working for Nixon


Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsefld, Karl Rove... they all got their first national political experience working in the Nixon administration.

And when Richard Nixon fell from public grace, they were determined to return to power, and to implement their strong-arm vision of neoconservative, anti-democratic governance.

And they did, 25 years later, under George W. Bush. The legacy of Richard Nixon lives on in the Bush administration...


Here's a fascinating 1972 video clip of Karl Rove, then 21-year-old GOP College Director of the Republican National Committee

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming. Now that it is down to just a few candidates I would think that this would be an issue.

Live Earth just picked up this topic and put out an article ( http://www.liveearth.org/news.php ) live earth is also asking why the presidential candidates are not being solicited for their stance on the issue of the climate change. I just saw a poll on www.EarthLab.com that says people care a lot about what their next leader thinks of global warming. Does anyone know of another poll or other results about this subject?

Here is the page where I saw the EarthLab poll: http://www.earthlab.com/life.aspx. This is a pretty legit website; they are endorsed by Al Gore and the alliance for climate protection and they have a carbon footprint calculator. Does anyone have a strong opinion about this like I do? No matter what your political affiliation is or who you vote for this is an important issue for our environment, our economy and for homeland security.
