The Drudge Report: Rove agreed [with Bush] in a question-and-answer session in his West Wing office for “Strategery,” which is based on exclusive, lengthy interviews with Bush, Cheney and their top advisers.

“She is the dominant player on their side of the slate,” Rove said of Clinton. “Anybody who thinks that she’s not going to be the candidate is kidding themselves.”
But he added that New York Democrat is sometimes too cautious and “philosophically very liberal,” despite recent efforts to appear moderate.
