who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Rumsfeld, Bolton, ... Gonzales, Wolfowitz. It doesn't take a political genius to know what links these men. They are all important George W. Bush aides and appointees. Agence France Presse has a story which quotes political analyst Eric David hinting that the 'steadfast support of the commander in chief' for the latter two may not last. After all Bush's approval rating is only about 30 per cent.

For Bush's latest intervention in the Gonzales affair - playing out in parallel in Washington, but little-noticed this side of the Atlantic - see the articles in the Boston Globe and Herald Tribune today. The IHT's headline is neat: "Gonzales's testimony satisfied at least one person, his boss".
