who will be next World Bank President What will they do


A side battle in the US administration? It is clearly emerging that a parallel battle is going on between the US Treasury and the State Department on one side and the White House and Bush's elite on the fate of Wolfowitz at the head of World Bank. It always difficult for US politics to deal with World Bank issues, but which views exist on this in US Congress? Why Nancy Pelosi is not saying anything on this? Apart of Edwards, what other Presidential candidates think of the scandal? Do they believe that keeping Wolfowitz at the head of the Bank will help US international credibility? Too many scandals are going on in Washington at the moment, but also the World Bank one deserves a clear say.
