A numerological statistical analysis of the numerical compatibility between number crunching geeks Nate Silver and Karl Rove
While Rove is a Republican spin doctor and Silver a "rational progressive," there is substantial and surprising overlap between the two.

Childhood Geek Level
According to his father, Silver "was a numbers fanatic…. When we took him to preschool one time, we dropped him off, and he announced, 'Today, I'm a numbers machine,' and started counting…. When we picked him up two and a half hours later, he was 'Two thousand one hundred and twenty-two, two thousand one hundred and twenty-three…' "
Rove said "I was the complete nerd. I had the briefcase. I had the pocket protector. I wore Hush Puppies when they were not cool. I was the thin, scrawny little guy. I was definitely uncool."

* Nate Silver, if you're reading this, could you please calculate these?
Based on their surprisingly high commonality levels, I tested their compatibility and determined that, based on numerology, the two have a compatibility of between 25 and 79%. As a control, I used both the subjects' given full names as well as the names they go by…
The following chart is a polychromatic demonstration of the Rove-Silver compatibility range…
I also looked at their compatibility level as a function of their astrological signs. These tests are less reliable than the love computers, and are qualitative and not quantitative. Astrological Compatibility Analysis (ACA) predicts a much lower compatibility, foreseeing that "this relationship lacks stimulation. You are both far too cautious, frugal and self-righteous to last."…
In conclusion, although it would depend on several contingencies, such as real data, the compatibility of Nate Silver and Karl Rove does, indeed, exist. Any further extrapolation would have to be done by Nate Silver.
