KONDRACKE:  No.  No. 1 is Trent Lott at $1.12 million.  No. 2, John McCain, the political reformer, $1.1 million.

BARNES:  You know who lost money this year by being a White House aide?


BARNES:  Karl Rove.  He's paid $140,000 a year, but by the White House counsel's office dawdling and not allowing him to sell that stock until June, he lost $138,000 on the stock, according to Bloomberg News.  Tough year for Karl, at least financially.
