Good question anon. Also maybe someone can tell me (I don't understand the US political system very well) if Rove could enter the race for Presidential candidacy?

Rex --

So long as Rove remains unindicted, he's technically eligible to run for any public office. And even indictment (being charged with a crime) isn't always a legal bar to candidacy. (Conviction for a felony, however, would rule him right out.)

However, with his reputation I don't think Rove would get very far -- not even in a race for town dogcatcher, much less one for chief executive. For the foreseeable future, at least, his name is mud -- box office poison in political circles.

Unless there's some nasty behind-the-scenes work some Mr. Big Politico needs done by a clever lad like Rove. (And even then, Mr. Big would be taking a huge risk of his own in hiring him, so foul is Rove's name after 6 years of his scorched-earth politics.)
