Rove became famous for a brand of politics that emphasized turning out his party’s conservative base and painting Democrats as weak on national security. With an eye on history, he hoped to realign national politics with far-reaching plans to steer taxpayer money to faith-based groups, rewrite immigration laws to appeal to the growing Hispanic population, and redefine government to favor more market-based approaches in Social Security, taxes and other arenas. But his second-term agenda collapsed as the popularity of the president and the Iraq war declined, and his winning streak was punctured when Democrats captured Congress last November.
