Would the Democrats hire Karl Rove?

I watched a couple of political shows this weekend where surrogates from the Clinton and Obama camps debated each other. They accused each others' campaign of fighting dirty and they said it would be the Republicans who would fight dirty in the general election, as if Democrats don't engage in any mudslinging. Over the last 20 years, Democrats have accused Republican of fighting dirty, but if Karl Rove, whom the Democrats consider "Mr. Dirty Politics" were to announce that he was switching parties, I think the Democrats would welcome him with open arms and he'd be the campaign manager of a major candidate come the next election cycle. Am I being too cynical, or if, hypothetically, Karl Rove decided to work for the Democrats, he'd easily get a job managing someone's campaign?

Say what you like about Karl ROve and George W Bush, but during election campaigns, Karl managed to keep George W disciplined and focused on the main message and more importantly, George Bush always made sure that his core supporters were out in numbers to vote for him. So, when you think about the guy's strengths instead of his nastier reputation, it would probably be a good thing if he worked for the Democrates. As things stand, the Democrates are not able to do anything in spite of the fact that they should be able to win this presidential election. Karl would definately be able to make sure they got their act together.
