The Rove effect

Whether intentional or not, everything Rove touches becomes intensely political, and in the aftermath of the Katrina flooding, apparently any moves by him were viewed through this lens by the Democratic Louisiana Governor and her staff:Katrina documents highlight political standoff - The Boston Globe. If you were a Democratic Governor in her shoes, watching the Bush team flailing and struggling to recover, wouldn't you view Rove in the same way? If he's asking you to do something, it likely isn't for your benefit. And isn't it nice to know that a Governor in her situation had to fear the political arm of the White House at a time like this?
