150. If.
Are we sure he is really going to be gone? As an advisor he could have dumped a massive strategy on the whitehouse to carry it through the next year or so. If anything this feels a little ominous to me. I am certain he wouldn't leave without giving them a playbook for the next year and/or be available via computer or phone. So his actual office not being in the white house would be meaningless.

Now if he REALLY is leaving that IS odd.
I can think of three scenarios that follow this.

1. Congress has them! The regular investigations have finally yielded the density of criminality needed to convince even the most corporatists of the DLC dems to examine impeachment. Even Arlen Spector is in a full foaming fury. The Bushies are trying to limit Rove and protect him and themselves at the same time. (and this one is my favorite)

2. Rove is setting up to help out one of the current candidates with their bid for presidency, and/or deep involvement with several congressional races. (This is the most likely one)

3. The administration REALLY doesn't need him anymore. For one reason or another Rove is not relevant. Perhaps the Neo-Cons think that Tony Snow is adequate as a propegandist but that they have strategy worked out. This is a scary possibility. It means they expect something to happen and it will be dramatic enought that it writes itself. Bush asserts absolute unitary emergency powers-stuff like that. (rather unlikely)
