Benjamin Netanyahu may hire former White House adviser Karl Rove.

Citing sources close to Netanyahu, Israel’s Channel 10 reported Thursday that Rove’s name has come up on a roster of strategic consultants that the Israeli opposition leader is thinking of hiring as he prepares for a possible leadership challenge against the embattled Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

Rove is widely credited with securing President Bush his two terms in office through a two-fisted political campaign strategy. He quit the White House last year.
