Now I don't know how many non-USers here know who Rove is, but both articles have information on it. Basically, he was responsible for G. Bush's electoral campaign strategy and probably crucial to his victories. He has come under heavy criticism several times, be it for using dirty tactics in the campaigns to the deal with the firing of eight federal prosecutors by Attorney General Gonzales, which Rove allegedly had known about for years, and on which case Bush ordered him not to testify on. The most famous case however was the leakage of a CIA agent's identity after her husband wrote an article refuting the Bush administrations claims that Saddam Hussein was looking into purchasing uranium ore from Niger, which led to the prosecution of "Scooter" Libby who was found guilty of perjury and obstruction of justice and then infamously pardoned by G Bush personally. Rove was not charged in connection with this case although some say he had also had connections with the leakage.

In a statement he said he was resigning for the sake of his family. It seems fairly obvious however that it has more to do with the mounting criticism of his role in these scandals.

This is supposed to be more of a piece of information and announcement than a discussion topic although i suppose you could discuss your opinions of the guy.

Personally, i say good riddance. Rove was a weasel, getting out of trouble when he should have been in deep. [COLOR=Silver] He's also fat.[/COLOR]

Washington D.C. and American politics will be a little bit cleaner when Karl Rove leaves the White House.

'[CoUkniu]Does it matter much?w. is still there after all.[/QUOTE] Well George W. Bush is a lame duck, wildly unpopular and he's gone in 1½ years so I wouldn't that much about him.

Though I don't like Hillary Clinton at all either I could vote for her if John Edwards or Barack Obama would be her running mate, not to mention that Hillary has some decent ideas despite of her opportunistic, slicky and dishonest person.

The USA is quite ready for woman president if you look on the polls.

hilary is rather extreme though.

I don't know about that, she has taken somewhat more moderate stances when it comes to social policies, businesses and foreign policy in order to get more votes.

"in order to get more votes" is the key phrase in that. haven't you noticed that alot of the politicians we have now said whatever they could to get votes?

alot of the american women are ready for a woman president it's just i doubt alot of guys are and when you cross that with the ones that are die hard republicans it could be very devastating for the political race for the democrats.
