    Rove is very, very good at what he does, which is count votes and tailor little messages to appeal to those demographic slices. He also is good in the gutter. He's come a long way, but in the end he's still just a great direct mail guy.

    Karen Hughes is really good at the overall message and strategy and built a good speech-writing team. Together they're a pretty good team, but Rove was too much of the equation for the last few years.

    So, ultimately, the one who really sucks is Bush. He has good people around him in many key spots, but he doesn't utilize them well, and he doesn't know enough to really scrutinize their decisions. When all is said and done, the real problem is Bush's brain, and not Bush's Brain.
