Who will replace Paul Wolfowitz as President of the World Bank?

The early buzz suggests that the job could go to outgoing British Prime Minister Tony Blair, whose popularity at home was seriously undercut by his strong support of U.S. President George W. Bush.

The other name being floated is former Tennessee Senator Bill Frist who, as Senate Majority Leader presided over what has come to be known as the “Do-Nothing Congress. Apparently disgraced former FEMA head Michael Brown is too busy spending time with family to be considered for the position.
