In the latest White House shake-up, Karl Rove no longer will be senior policy coordinator for President Bush but will remain as senior adviser and as a deputy chief of staff in charge of political strategy, focusing particularly on the fall elections. That means he still may be calling a lot of the policy shots. The other big shake-up of the day is the resignation of White House spokesman Scott McClellan. Being press secretary can be frustrating, given that your job often is to avoid saying anything — at which McClellan could be a master. McClellan also was burned (or maybe not) when he denied that Rove had any involvement in the Valerie Plame leak.
