Rove's first appearance on CBS News

Thanks to the Very Short List, here's a video of a young Karl Rove on the CBS news in January, 1972.  Rove was working to re-elect Nixon (remember CREEP, the Committee to Re-Elect the President?).  His focus then was on college students, but he clearly had some keen insights then.  I don't like the guy, but he's damn good at what he does.

PS - Do you also remember when the news would have 5 minute long feature pieces like this?  Our news coverage on TV suffers from short-attention span problems, just like most of the viewers.
