Bush top political 'architect,' Karl Rove, resigning at end of August

WASHINGTON - President Bush's close friend and chief political strategist Karl Rove is resigning. The White House says Rove plans to leave the administration at the end of August.

A longtime member of Bush's inner circle, Rove was nicknamed "the architect" by the president for designing the strategy that twice won him the White House.

White House deputy press secretary Dana Perino says, "Obviously it's a big loss to us." Perino says Rove is "a great colleague, a good friend, and a brilliant mind."
