Well, the architect is leaving the construction site. How unfortunate for Dubbya. (We all know it isn't actually that unfortunate; if his advice is needed, they'll consult with him behind the scenes.) Good timing, though, Karl; he's exiting right at the boiling-point. That is, in my opinion, this departure is an effort to escape congressional scrutiny since a Democratic Congress is subpoenaing White House staffers to testify in the case that involves the firing of the U.S attorneys. In any case, what actually snagged my attention is that there is seemingly speculation in the White House that some democrats will call on Rove to help support their campaigns. I doubt this, personally, because Rove's name is in connection with one of the worst Presidents in history. I've been shocked before, though. I hope this departure is symbolic of the Bush Administration's demise.
