who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Wolfowitz mistakes "not a firing offense" "The White House acknowledged on Tuesday that World Bank president Paul Wolfowitz erred in the handling of a pay raise and promotion for his companion but said that was not cause for him to be removed from his job.
"We've made clear that we support Paul Wolfowitz. Furthermore, he has said -- and we agree -- that certainly a lot of mistakes were made in the personnel process. But it's not a firing offense," White House spokesman Tony Snow told reporters."
according to Reuters

and he wants the recipients of the WB loans to toe the line on corruption.
"Do like I say not like I do" goes the saying.
Is the word " OXYMORON" applicable in this case?
When Wolfowitz took the helm of the bank, he vowed to uproot corruption and to focus "on a Calvinist obsession with good behavior."

This administration is spiraling downwards as far as ethics and conduct are concerned.
Whew these are "good standards" to abide to for some privileged ones who know that they can't be touched because rules DO NOT apply to them.
