WB President doesn’t need to be American:

Wrote the four House Chairmen in a letter to Bush, released today and reported by Reuters. According to them,“The nominee should be deeply committed to American values, but need not have an American address. The global pool of talent is deep, and we should make it clear that the United States believes that the best nominee could come from anywhere,” the Democratic congressmen said.

“There has been much discussion of whether or not the nominee should or must be an American. We think that misses the point,” read the letter signed by House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, House Ways and Means Chairman Charles Rangel and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Tom Lantos.

Let’s see if GWH will take heed from the Democrats.

One thought on “WB President doesn’t need to be American:

  1. Regarding who should not be the new “World Bank President,” is an American. I say this because any tie to America is tied to President Bush and his powers.

    I am an American and I can see what is going on, daily. I am 64 years old, I am a journalism student at the local university. I am totally inquisitive. I want to know what is going on in the world and am committed to stay in touch with this World Bank website to know what is going on. I am Norwegian and Swedish by blood.

    Thank you,
