    The dismantling of the Bush administration is continuing. I'm curious as to who is next down the pike here.

    My biggest regret is that it's on his terms and he isn't being taken out in handcuffs. And yet, the timing of this all and the fact that I don't trust Rove's intentions when he wipes himself has me wondering if there is something deeper behind this all? Is there another bombshell about to explode? Another outrageous over-extension of executive power that has emerged from the shadows of the formally GOP-controlled congress to the light of the Dem-controlled congress?

    I can dream....

    being frog marched thru the west wing gates, the perp walk --- the bad photo, the standing hunched before the judge, the crying of: "no no no " by relatives, the orange jump suit ...

    To quote skater Nancy Kerrigan:

    Oh god...just saw the video of him giving his farewell speech...and I want to puke! I must admit I was shocked the man actually displayed some semblence of emotion. Not suprising at all to me was how he continued to play to the "base" by mentioning god and the almighty and how god will help Bush moving forward. Yes, I'm certain god is a HUGE Bush fan Karl.

    Oh Karl...are your feet starting to burn already you friggin' lying, cheating, calculating hypocrite?

    Rove is going to help the next republican president.

    The next fight for the white house is going to be hard.... rove will need a little rest, then get ready to battle!!! Although, my guess is he will be more behind the scenes... but leaving now, will allow him to remain low for a while.

    Then again, maybe he is going to retire. right... "retire?" that was almost funny.

    As he abandons his 'friend' Bush with some of the lowest approval ratings in modern history, Rove may appear like a rat fleeing from a sinking ship, but we should not forget this was a ship whose sole job it was for Rove to keep politically afloat. So in the end, we must conclude that he failed utterly. Rove will simply be remembered as the used car salesman who sold the country what they finally realized was a huge lemon. And now America will learn when it tries to take this Edsel back to the dealership that the salesman is nowhere to be found. Such a legacy. Well that's politics for you.

    As they say in the old SNL skit...."ba bye".

    On a more serious note - is he is no longer able to claim executive priviledge thereby being more exposed now that he has left?

    Rove cant claim this, only Bush can. At any rate, Bush will see to it that Rove stays as ver clempt as possible at least while he is still in office. Whether he is successful is dependent on the current legal battle with Congress.

    ..........Edit to add an interesting perspective on Rove's legacy from Joshua Green of the Atlantic:
