Rove politicking in N.D. Saturday as Rita hits

Apparently our man is heading to North Dakota on Saturday for a GOP fundraiser and to "...meet with Gov. John Hoeven, whom Republicans hope to coax into running against Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D."

Shouldn't the reconstruction of the Gulf Coast be the priority right now? He is running that operation right? So why does he have time for such political concerns? Doesn't this detract from his focus on the disaster zone? And shouldn't Bush be ensuring that focus is properly on the people in need right now rather than the GOP's political fortunes?

Interesting that such items get national coverage now. Good on him. Should be a good juxtaposition between Rove's Saturday politicking in North Dakota and people fighting as it hits on Saturday.
