Meet The New Boss...

...Same as the old boss?-
U.S. President George W. Bush has chosen Robert Zoellick, a former U.S. Trade Representative, as the new president for the World Bank, a senior administration official said on Tuesday.

Bush will announce his selection on Wednesday and expects the bank's board to accept it, the official said...

Describing Mr. Zoellick as a "former U.S. Trade Representative" is technically accurate, but also leaves out something important. Zoellick's previous job before this month was being President Bush's Deputy Secretary of State for the first half of his second term.

In addition, Mr. Zoellick-- like Paul Wolfowitz-- was one of the original supporters/architects of the neoconservative ideology that lead to the invasion of Iraq.

Translation: After 6+ years in Washington DC, President Bush's rolodex is still awfully thin.
