Rove On The Record?

Bob Novak faced some gentle questioning yesterday afternoon on “Inside Politics” from Candy Crowley, and out of it came at least one fascinating insight:

CROWLEY: Well outside whether you testify — I assume you can’t tell us whether you testified at the grand jury or still won’t tell us. Outside of that, can you tell us whether you ever told Karl Rove about Valerie Plame‘s status?

NOVAK: I can’t tell anything I ever talked to Karl Rove about, because I don’t think I ever talked to him about any subject even the time of day, on the record.

Is that normal? Does Karl Rove never speak to anyone on the record? Or can we read anything into how Rove uses Novak by the fact they never speak for attribution?

Anyone out there want to weigh in one way or the other?

> Did Novak lie to Candy Crowley yesterday? Think Progress found at least two instances where Novak has quoted Karl Rove on the record.
