I have to admit it:  Even though Karl Rove is out of the White House as of the end of this month, I can't help but be somewhat skeptical regarding whether he has been forced out.  Rove has demonstrated his political acumen time after time in guiding Bush to the Governorship of Texas, then to the Presidency.  Since 2000, Rove has further illustrated his ability to manipulate hearts, minds and the media to keep his clearly-incompetent tool from being blocked by Congress or outright removed from power.  

Rove need not have an office in the White House to "advise" the President.  Further, there's really nothing I've seen to suggest that Rove will not simply attach himself to some other politician's retinue, eventually guiding said misguided soul to a position where Rove can again play his political games.

Like a significant fraction of Nixon's crew--whose boss was actually impeached--I suspect that we haven't seen or heard the last of Rove....

EDIT:  Classic error on my part.  As pointed out in comments, Nixon was never actually impeached.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
