who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Wolfowitz idealist? "I remember once when the President, in the middle of a discussion about a particular country said, 'just how brutal are its leaders?' " Paul Wolfowitz told Vanity Fair's Sam Tannenhaus.

"I thought it was an incredibly perceptive question and it's too often left out of the equation as a sort of pragmatic view that you've got to deal with them as the leaders of country X and you shouldn't inquire too deeply into what kind of people they are.

"I think you do have to deal with all kinds of dubious characters in the world in order to accomplish the national security objectives of the country.

"But it's really important to keep in mind what this country is about. It's a lot more than just physical security or economic health."
