Bush Advisor Karl Rove to Speak on Campus Saturday

March 15, 2010

Karl Rove, the Senior Adviser and Deputy Chief of Staff to former President George W. Bush, will be giving a talk titled “Does Idealism Have a Place in Politics?” at Wabash College on Saturday, March 20.

Sponsored by The Wabash Commentary, Rove will address the question of whether the political end ever justifies its means and discuss the tensions between working for big ideals in a world of imperfect people and imperfect politics.

The talk will coincide with the release of Rove’s new book, Courage and Consequence. In it he pulls back the curtain on the Bush administration, setting the record straight on those controversial years and showing how tests of character affected him.

Since resigning as Deputy Chief of Staff, Rove has worked as a political analyst for Fox News while writing an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal and a regular column for Newsweek.

A Q&A session will conclude the talk, followed by a public reception, at which Mr. Rove will be available to sign copies of his new book. The event is free and open to the public. Please direct questions to editor@wabashcommentary.org.
