If Karl Rove, chief political strategist for President George W. Bush, were a betting man he might be feeling relieved.
The odds on his being indicted and forced out of the White House have swung from 1-2 last week to a 70 per cent chance that he will stay, according to sportsbook.com, an online website.
However, Rove has established his reputation as a political strategist by relying on his forensic analysis of the party faithful rather than by gambling on hunches.
Now he is facing someone with equal forensic skills: Patrick Fitzgerald, the special prosecutor, who gives a whole new meaning to the prosecutorial byword relentless.
