Monday, August 13 in the news.....

  • Karl Rove, President Bush's close friend and chief political strategist, plans to leave the administration at the end of August, the White House said Monday. It is uncertain what he plans to do next, but Rove said once you've sunk the President of the United States of America to the lowest approval ratings since the Jackson 5 ruled the Billboard charts, how can you top that.

  • A longtime member of Bush's inner circle, Rove was nicknamed "the architect" by the president for designing the strategy that twice won him the White House, and also because he was able to fix up sugar cookie nights in the White House kitchen without Laura finding out.
