Karl Rove Update
President Bush's behind-the-curtain adviser, Karl Rove, is expected to reprise that role for the prez in Texas, we hear.

nominee have ties to a Texas homebuilder who financed attacks on Democrat John
Kerry's Vietnam War record in the 2004 presidential campaign.
Charles H. Bell and Thomas Hiltachk's law firm banked nearly $65,000 in fees from a California-based political committee funded almost solely by Bob J. Perry that targeted Democrats in 2006. Perry, a major Republican donor, contributed nearly $4.5 million to the group Swift Boat Veterans for Truth that made unsubstantiated but damaging attacks on Kerry three years ago.
