Karl Rove has $10,000 riding on a Mitt Romney presidency – or rather on what Romney will do his first day in office if elected.
The former adviser to George W. Bush was debating Howard Dean, who made his own bid for the presidency in 2004, Monday at Duke University. At the end, Dean said Romney wouldn’t keep his promise to label China as a currency manipulator; Rove disagreed and thus the wager was on.
