Karl Rove

David Frum is critical of Karl Rove: He may have been good on political strategy, but he was bad on policy, especially on immigration (which he confused with political strategy). Now see Paul Mirengoff on Frum and Rove. And this is a transcript of Rush Limbaugh interviewing Rove yesterday, wherein Rove was critical of Hillary Clinton. And this is the New York Times article on how "Karl Rove intensified his attack on Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton." You can listen to Rove's talk for the Ashbrook Center at our annual dinner in '05. Good speech; revealing of his great virtues, and vices. The liberals will miss him more than anyone else, since they loved to demonize him.

Maybe this is just a silly question from someone in the outland who really knows nothing about DC politics. Is it possible that Rove is getting out of this administration for the purpose of positioning himself to be ready for the next main chance? He will need time to rehabilitate his image. He will also need time to read the current electorate, with which he seems to have lost touch. There is also time to sort out which horse will run in the main event, if he pulls out now, so he can see whom he would best help and who he could help, if he can be "rehabilitated" in the way I suggest. I have not seen this posited anywhere and am just wondering.
