The Examiner’s new White House correspondent, Bill Sammon (left), has only been on the job two weeks and already has a big scoop — an interview with the president and presidential adviser Karl Rove, each of whom say that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will be tough to beat in the Democratic presidential primaries of 2008, but not in the general election. Actually, Sammon interviewed them for his new book that comes out Monday (Feb. 27) titled “Strategery.” But the Examiner newspapers (here in SF and Washington, D.C.) are running excerpts in Monday’s editions. According to the Drudge Report, Rove said Clinton’s weaknesses are “her her personal philosophy and her brittleness about her.” The cover of “Strategery” says Sammon writes for the Washington Times, which indicates the book was printed before he jumped ship to the Examiner. The Examiner newspapers are owned by conservative billionaire Phil Anschutz of Denver, who plans to open another one in Baltimore in two months and has registered the name Examiner in about 200 cities.
