CNN & AP are reporting Tony Snow is leaving the White House for greener pastures. With kids approaching college age – and WH Chief of Staff Josh Bolten laying the hammer down… Snow has chosen to leave.

My gut tells me this: Rove, Snow & others who really give a damn about President George Walker Bush have figured out they do one thing better than SecState Condi Rice: POLITICS. Rove will ensure the President gets credit for his success – and that Condi Rice remains in her place. As a staffer.

About. Damn. Time.

Also, look for Rove on Meet the Press this Sunday.
