Who is really running the US

Who is really running the US. Karl Rove. And he was not elected. James Moore, quoted in a Washington Post article: Karl Rove led the nation to war to improve the political prospects of George W. Bush. I know how surreal that sounds. But I also know it is true.”As the president's chief political advisor, Rove is involved in every decision coming out of the Oval Office. In fact, he flat out makes some of them. He is co-president of the United States, just as he was co-candidate for that office and co-governor of Texas. His relationship with the president is the most profound and complex of all of the White House advisors. And his role creates questions not addressed by our Constitution.”Rove is probably the most powerful unelected person in American history.” The article quoted is from the LA Times (free registration required). The New Yorker article on Rove is supposed to be incredibly fascinating and horrible reading. [Ceejbot]
