who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Wolfowitz must have had a busy day This interesting anecdote from a reporter from CNN says a lot about the state of mind of Wolfowitz and his high-priced attorney on this very "depressing" day

In summary as reported in the story highlights on the CNN website:
• Reporter tries to reach embattled World Bank chief's attorney
• He gets hold of lawyer, but call goes through two others first including someone who says abruptly, "This is Paul Wolfowitz."
• Attorney says Wolfowitz will not resign "under a cloud"

and "he will rather put this matter to a full vote" as reported in various newspapers.

I guess it is "All or Naught".
Well tomorrow is another day and someone has managed to survive for one more day!
