13. Well then, speaking for myself, I'm motivated by justice, not revenge
What Rove did to the Wilsons bothers me, not because of what Starr did to Clinton, but because what Rove did was wrong, immoral, and put many lives in danger. I want to see him punished, not because other Republicans used the Lewinsky scandal to stall Clinton's domestic agenda, but because he broke the law.

I don't bear grudges. Rove certainly didn't have a hand in the Clinton impeachment. This tribal-think revenge stuff is bullshit. I don't doubt that some people are motivated that way--including you, it seems--but I think for hte most part Democrats tend to be rational and fair minded to a fault. It's in the mix there, somewhere, but hardly what you'd call the main reason behind hounding Rove from office.

The real problem with Rove is the man is a security risk.
