I'm sure we will have much to say about this development in the near future here at Left-Over, but here is my initial reaction.
"MC Rove" has been the most secretive - non public figure in this administration. He refuses to speak to Congress, arguing that because he was an appointed advisor he has no duty to appear. He does not speak to the press - unless it is to leak classified information. He does no public interviews. So what the hell is Rove doing having a press conference to announce his resignation. Just go away as secretly as everything else you've done. Spare us the tearful goodbyes. The fallen soldiers didn't get that chance - nor did they get to spend more time with their families.
