Clinton in talks about possible move to World Bank


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been in discussions with the White House about leaving her job next year to become head of the World Bank, sources familiar with the discussions said Thursday.

The former first lady and onetime political rival to President Barack Obama quickly became one of the most influential members of his cabinet after she began her tenure at State in early 2009.

She has said publicly she did not plan to stay on at the State Department for more than four years. Associates say Clinton has expressed interest in having the World Bank job should the Bank's current president, Robert Zoellick, leave at the end of his term, in the middle of 2012.

"Hillary Clinton wants the job," said one source who knows the secretary well.

A second source also said Clinton wants the position.

Not entirely sure how I feel about this. I am not much of the conspiracy theory type, but this just seems so out of place. Shes already ruled out a presidential run, and is not going to remain in Obamas cabinet.

I know Bill Clinton is a member of the Bildeberg group, which coincidentally enough this comes directly on the heels of that meeting.


Conspiracy or coincidence?

you know what happened last time a "progressive" got control of money

they created the most corrupt organizations of the world the federal reserve

guess that wasnt good enough now they want to go global.

people often call me out on my partisanship and this is why.

What's her background, other than what we've seen in politics?
Has she banking experience?
Is she an economist?
Has she ever done anything to do with the economy, or the budget?
Is she capable of this particular job?

Prior to polotics, she was a lawyer (remeber the white water fiasco during slick willys term in office). Other than that, Senator for New York and currently Secretary of State.

So, not even accounting in her background.
That's kind of frightening that she would even be considered for it.
No experience at all, it would be just because of her power in politics. :shk:

Anyone working in any capacity for the World Bank, should have a background in money management....

I'm happy for her if this is what she wants. She's done a good job as secretary of state in my opinion. She'll get no hate from me as long as she does a good job.
