The departure of Karl Rove from the Bush team is being treated with some confusion. Seems like a slam dunk to me. Rove’s thing has always been dirty tricks and election strategy. You can argue about how successful he would have been without some intervention from the Supreme Court, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and Osama Bin Laden.
At any rate, Rove would see the “swiftboating” of Hillary Clinton as the capstone of his career, and also his chance to make a million bucks.
That’s where he’s going. That’s what he’s gonna try to do.
What’s the big mystery?
