Dependable Erection

Old white guys - the last ethnic group it's OK to rag on

Now that Wolfowitz is on his way to a cushy retirement, here's who the Bush administration is considering to replace him:

Among those mentioned as a possible replacement for Wolfowitz were former Deputy Secretary of State
Robert Zoellick, who was Bush's former trade chief; Robert Kimmitt, the No. 2 at the Treasury Department; Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson; former Rep. Jim Leach, R-Iowa; Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind.,; Stanley Fischer, who once worked at the International Monetary Fund and is now with the Bank of Israel; and former U.S. Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker.




  • Personally, I think W should be maneuvered (manoeuvred?) into tapping a certain soon-to-be-available yet relatively sleaze-free American political booster as successor to Wolfowitz.

    Of course, I'd hesitate to recommend any action that might favor the legacy of the Lameduck-in-Chief. But seriously, I think Tony Blair shouldn't accept too many seats on corporate boards just yet...
