Karl Rove, George W. Bush's political adviser, has announced that he will step down August 31, 2007.
The Leftwing Mainstream Media claims that Rove's standing has diminished considerably, and perhaps it has under the vicious attacks that the Left has consistently launched against him. One attack, of which Mr. Rove survived, was an investigation into the leak of the identity of a Central Intelligence Agency operative.
Mr. Rove announced his decision to step down in an interview published on Monday morning in The Wall Street Journal. In the interview he speculated that President Bush’s approval ratings would rise again, that Iraq would improve, and that a Republican candidate had “a very good chance” to win the 2008 election because the Democrats would nominate Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The name of a successor has not been released yet.
