Don't throw me in the briar patch

Karl Rove is a genius, as this article shows.

President Bush on Thursday sought to ease differences with ally Sen. John McCain by promising to take legal action to stop a wave of ads by outside groups, including those attacking the war record of Bush's presidential election rival John Kerry. The White House said Bush made the commitment to file a lawsuit against the Federal Election Committee when he spoke to McCain in a telephone call from Air Force One. The Arizona Republican and Vietnam veteran has called on Bush to do more to end anti-Kerry ads by a group called Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, which has accused Kerry, McCain's friend and the Democratic presidential nominee, of lying about his Vietnam War service.
In one stroke, Bush rises above the Swift Boat Mud, ensures that the SBVT will continue to recieve media attention, and makes himself look decisive and powerful while Kerry is just whinning. I wish I was Karl Rove.

Reconciling his differences with McCain was also wise. McCain's support is something he needs going into this election.
