ScrappleFace � Rove Quits White House to Run Hillary Campaign: "Rove Quits White House to Run Hillary Campaign by Scott Ott (2007-08-13) — Karl Rove, the chief adviser to George Bush since 1993, in a new interview with the Wall Street Journal, said he would resign from the Bush administration effective August 31, to spend more time with family and to head up the presidential campaign of Democrat front runner Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY. Mr. Rove called the move “a cold calculated decision to remain in charge of the U.S. government indefinitely.” “I crave power,” Mr. Rove told the Journal, “and I can’t get my fix working for a lame duck president. I’ve been informally advising future President Clinton for about a year. I have a lot in common with Hillary — mostly notably the ice water that flows through our veins and the unbridled lust to rule the nation with an iron fist.” President Bush plans to make a statement about the Rove resignation, as soon as he can find someone to tell him what to say."
