E.J. Dionne on Rove's new mission

Today's Washington Post has a column by E. J. Dionne, Jr. that argues Rove has not been demoted, but rather focused on the only thing that matters to Bush right now: holding on to Congress. The Bush policy agenda is dead. If the Dems take control of either branch of Congress, here come the subpoenas.

Unanswered in all this: if Rove's job is now politics, am I and my fellow tax-payers still paying his salary? Or has he moved off the U.S. payroll and on to the Republican Party's?
