Dr. Wolfowitz Goes to the World Bank
The President is recommending everyone's favorite Deputy Secretary of Defense to be head of the World Bank. While I'm not a big fan of The Wolfster, I'm relatively optimistic. First, as Yglesias points out, the World Bank doesn't have the capability to start wars. Secondly, Wolfowitz has already done some work on development, namely, his Ph.D thesis analyzing nuclear desalinization in the Middle East. It's wonky, chart-filled, and obsessed with oranges--perfect for a World Bank President.
