April 19, 2006

From Yahoo! News:

Karl Rove, one of President George W. Bush's most trusted political advisers, is giving up his policy role as part of a White House shake-up, administration officials said on Wednesday.

Rove has been deputy White House chief of staff for policy development and Bush's top political adviser. His policy role will be taken over by Joel Kaplan, currently the deputy White House budget director, two administration officials said.
