The Age of Bush isn't quite finished: Michigan Representative John Conyers, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, issued a subpoena for Karl Rove yesterday, requiring his testimony on February 2 on questions about the 2006 U.S. attorney firings. "Change has come to Washington, and I hope Karl Rove is ready for it," Mr. Conyers said. "After two years of stonewalling, it's time for him to talk." President Obama, meanwhile, is caught between a rock and a hard place. The Wall Street Journal notes that "presidents have a history of guarding the principle of executive privilege, even when it is claimed by a predecessor of a different political stripe." Rove's attorney said he will consult Obama's White House counsel over the new president's position, and "At the end of the day Rove will do what he is told."
