who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Bad, bad Boys and Girls. Steve Clemons has some good stories on the boy and girls of Mr PW.
In his Washington Note blog, he writes:" Even Wolfowitz has been infuriated with a few judgment lapses by Kellems -- with reports of Wolfowitz screaming at him on the phone in Brazil for private misbehavior that also seriously delayed the World Bank delegation and plane flight."

Wonder what is the definition of "private misbehavior" for the son/spinmeister from Ohio? Is it as naughty as Randall Tobias ? Anyway we learn also in the same blog that Ms Cleveland will face the Panel to explain about the faked e-mail conundrum that Alex has reported on April 26th. Stay tuned - the afternoon may get busy

Did anyone look into Kellems work on Sen. Lugar's presidential campaign ? Knowledgable GOP hands remember his gig running Lugar for President did not even last as long as Lugar's s candidacy -- they say, caught trading a Lugar campaign appearance in exchange for personal considerations, Brazil-style. Speaking of Brazil, when will someone step forward and tell what really happened in sunny Sao Paulo? Word is the news media has the story and is holding onto it until they speak with someone who was on the trip or in country, or can otherwise speak first-hand
