Rove reveals what led to victory (Says this is his last campaign)

Karl Rove, President Bush's top political adviser, continued his public victory dance Tuesday, attributing Republican dominance in part to cultural issues such as gay marriage as well as a strong turnout of regular churchgoers.

In an hourlong lunch meeting with reporters, Rove expanded on the presidential campaign and about a second Bush term. He suggested that opposition to gay marriages resonated with many voters this year. Bush endorsed a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriages.

"This is an issue of which there is broad general consensus," he said. "People do not like the idea of the concept of marriage as a union between a man and woman being uprooted and overturned by a few activist judges or a couple of activist local elected officials."

Rove said that he expected to remain in the White House for the second term as a senior adviser. But he said presidential candidates seeking expertise in 2008 will have to look elsewhere.

"It will be left to somebody else who has a little bit more energy and interest than me," he said. "This will be the last presidential campaign I will ever do."
