Chief Wonk:

The man President Bush described in November as “the architect” got a promotion this week. Karl Rove was named deputy chief of staff responsible for domestic policy, economic policy, national security and homeland security. The change in title was considered more a formality than an actual promotion, but it confirms Rove’s influence over all public policy items at the White House. Michael Gerson, Bush’s outgoing chief speechwriter, told the Washington Post: “I don’t think people realize how much of a wonk Karl is. He’s more up on more issues than anyone at the White House.”
