Rove didn’t have a good election night. But he and Joe Trippi (whom I like a lot) had an outstanding election season. Think back to those primaries and caucuses in Iowa, Michigan, and Ohio when they correctly interpreted the early returns.
Rove isn’t exactly a “no spin zone,” but he isn’t Dick Morris either. The fact is that there are few “no spin” commentators on cable news. For me, the test for a commentator is, do I learn from him or her. Rove is one of the few on cable news who passes that test.
