Karl Rove Plots His Return

Bloomberg Businessweek’s assistant managing editor, Paul Barrett, has written an article called “Karl Rove: He’s Back, Big Time,” about the torrent of campaign funds Rove has scared up for Republicans in the November elections.

“The bespectacled 61-year-old, once known as Bush’s Brain, left the White House five years ago,” Barrett writes. “His patron was sinking in the polls, and Rove himself had barely escaped criminal indictment. Now he’s back—big time, as his friend former Vice President Dick Cheney might say. In a performance that rivals Rove’s nurturing of a famously inarticulate Texas governor into a two-term president, the strategist is re-engineering the practice of partisan money management in hopes of drumming Barack Obama out of the White House.”
