Hillary Clinton 'wants to quit to run World Bank'


Mrs Clinton, the former First Lady, Senator for New York and rival to President Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic primary race, is said to be eager to become the first female president of the World Bank should the post become vacant next year.

"Hillary Clinton wants the job," a source close to Mrs Clinton told Reuters, which broke the news of the possible move.

Robert Zoellick, a former Bush administration official, is believed to be ready to step down as president at the end of his term in the middle of next year.

Mrs Clinton has made clear she does not want to remain US Secretary of State, a gruelling job demanding months of world travel each year, beyond Mr Obama's first term.

Let the sow step down/up as she will.  This will give her a chance to "steal" from the entire world instead of just the United States.  My god, my god doesn't anyone see what the hell is happening???

"On the other hand, if she stepped down early from the World Bank she could enter the 2016 race for the White House with historically unparalleled experience in foreign policy, economic policy, on Capitol Hill and as First Lady." - Sounds like the game plan. - Then on the other hand. I thought that the world as we know it was going to be coming to an end here shortly, and anyone thinking about four or five years from now is only fooling themselves or attempting to hide the fact that things are goinng to get worse.
