New Rove leaving White House
[link|http://thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/08/13/roves-august-surprise/|NY Times]
It\ufffds 7:58 a.m. Eastern time, and Karl Rove\ufffds exit from the White House emerged several hours ago in a Wall Street Journal column titled \ufffd\ufffdThe Mark of Rove.\ufffd\ufffd

In confirming the exit, Deputy Press Secretary Dana Perino said it was not clear how he would be replaced. \ufffdIt\ufffds a big loss to us,\ufffd she said. If anyone on the White House staff is irreplaceable, it would be the man described in The New York Times this morning as \ufffdthe midwife of Mr. Bush\ufffds political persona itself.\ufffd

Wow, this is big news. I can see two real possibilities. First, Cheney might have pushed him out, making the argument that they don't need to be worried about political opinion now they need to focus on what they can do in their remaining time in office. Second, Rove may be leaving to join another campaign. Either way it bears watching.

New Yup.
Who's he going to go with?

Thompson?
Giuliani?
Romney?
McCain?

Maybe he'll just be a hired gun until the nomination is a foregone conclusion. I'd probably lean toward him going with Thompson or Giuliani, but all of them have their reasons for wanting him (e.g. McCain was buying up Bush's brain trust a few months ago, but may not have the money or buzz now; Romney has the money and is smooth, but "conservatives" are still suspicious of him; Giuliani tries to be Mr. 9/11 and is closest to Bush on the GWOT, but has lots of skeletons; Thompson's still a wild-card, but he's got lots of buzz among the chattering class at the moment).

Cheers,
Scott.
