Karl Rove Isn't Sure Sarah Palin Has Thick Enough Skin To Run For President (VIDEO)

A few weeks ago Karl Rove questioned whether Sarah Palin had the requisite gravitas to be president, in light of the fact she was doing a reality TV show. Palin very strongly and publicly disagreed with Rove's analysis. On 'Hannity' (weekdays 9 PM ET on Fox News), Rove addressed the dispute.

"Guess what? I'm a commentator, and I'm sorry that she took offense at it," Rove said. "I've said nice things about her and I've raised a question. But a confident candidate doesn't get thrown off by that."

Rove then went on to add that he hopes Palin has a "thicker skin" than she displayed in responding to him if she plans on running for president.

The fact that they are both Fox News employees probably prevents Rove from spelling out exactly what he feels about Palin, but it's still pretty clear that the man who helped successfully sell George W. Bush to the nation doesn't think Palin would make a credible GOP nominee for president.
