who will be next World Bank President What will they do


We have a problem with the President, not the procedure Problematic statement from Dutch Finance Minister Wouter Bos. Up to now the appointment procedure seems to have worked,'' Bos added. ``We have a problem with the president, not the procedure.''

We really need to turn the screws on the process side of things. Some slogans for press releases may be:

When we thought Bush couldn't do any worse than Ashcroft, he gave us Gonzales.

Well, Bush's pal Rumsfeld needs a place to go. Will they select him next?

Maybe if Gonzales leaves the DoJ, he can go to another job that for which he has no qualifications.

It's completely fitting George W. Bush gets to choose the person in charge of global development. After all, he's made some enlightening remarks about the world including:

Africa is a nation that suffers from incredible disease.
Do you have black [people in Brazil], too?

Etc, etc
