Consiglieri Karl Rove

The White House has closed ranks around Karl Rove, but is this really the best way to handle the scandal?

BusinessWeek examines how the first MBA President should deal with Traitorgate, as suggested by professors at some of the nation's most prestigious business schools.

As relates to Bush's storied loyalty to his friends, Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, founder of the Chief Executive Leadership Institute at the Yale School of Management offers this:

As it stands, Bush is standing by his pal, making sure that Rove is seen walking beside him in photo-ops. But Bush should remember that there's no room for friends at the top. "'Don't mess with my friends,' is what a mob boss says," cautions Sonnenfeld. "We're not watching The Sopranos. This is The White House."
Oh, that's right! It's not the mob. It's kind of easy to forget that sometimes.
