Karl Rove moved up on the Ohio delegate agenda today. He’ll be speaking at this morning’s breakfast instead of Sean Hannity. Rove has been President Bush’s political adviser. And while vilified by many, he’s still revered by most GOP delegates as the political genius who engineered the win for Republicans in Ohio — and the nation — in 2004.
Also up for this morning is Michael Parkinson, a board member with the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease. The partnership includes the Cleveland Clinic, AIDS task force of Greater Cleveland, and the Ohio State Alliance of YMCAs. Chronic diseases, including caner, diabetes, heart disease and stoke, cause seven of every 10 deaths inthe U.S., according to the Center for Disease Control. Parkinson says they also account for nearly three quarters of the $2 trillion the U.S. spends on healthcare.
