In the U.S. Karl Rove is most definitely considered a neo-con.
I dunno, I think the jury's still out on this. Some studies have found that it significantly reduces sensitivity, and promoting it in AIDS-ravaged regions runs the risk of backfiring badly by making circumcised men think they're 'immune' from catching it and therefore don't need to bother with condoms.
Um, as you were.
Surely Rove is just the ultimate righwing Rep fixer, rather than an outright neo-con. The neo-cons (at least my image of them) have a stronger ideological base than just 'tax rich people less'. From your original list, I think Kristol qualifies too and he just lurrrrrrves Palin. Though Lieberman would've been the most obvious neo-con pick for VP.
It's a way of trying to dissociate the party from Bush's administration, because Bush wasn't a 'true' conservative, even though he obviously was.
Well, that sourcewatch list is (unsurprisingly) innacurate: including Henry Kissinger, Richard Armitage, and Zbigniew Brzezinski on a list of "neoconservatives" is mind-bogglingly wrong. If Karl Rove is a neocon then the term has no meaning.
