A turd without a turd blossom is still a turd

What will Bush do if Rove is indicted for his involvement in the Plame Game and compelled to resign?

After all, Rove has been with Bush through two gubernatorial elections and two presidential elections, and it's tough to imagine Bush's political career without his long-time #1.

At Slate, John Dickerson offers "the five ways a Rove departure would hurt the Bush White House most". All valid, but I would add this: Rove might depart the Bush White House, but I doubt Bush would ever allow him to depart altogether. Bush is known for his loyalty to his friends, not to mention his cronyism (Brown, Miers, etc.), and I suspect that Rove would continue to be one of Bush's most trusted advisors going forward even from an indictment.

    Leno: Mr. President, what will you do if Rove is found guilty?

    Bush: Pardon?
