We've all seen or read about Karl Rove finally stepping down, using the well worn excuse of spending more time with family. In my opinion, someone so steeped in that ideology, with an election on the horizon, will not be off the political scene for very long. There are certainly enough Republican presidential candidates out there who would kill to have him around. "Swiftboating" tactics won't be far behind.
This is a brief look at Karl Rove, when he began, with the Nixon campaign. You can see his determination even then.
I'd love to believe that he's gone for good, but I just don't believe it.
