ssociates 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.
A third source said Obama has already expressed support for the change in her role. It is unclear whether Obama has formally agreed to nominate her for the post, which would require approval by the 187 member countries of the World Bank.
The White House declined to comment.

what does hillary clinton know about banking. i doubt she even knows how to use an atm.
her and her husbands record in the financial district are bordering on, if not criminal. from their whitewater bank dealings to questionable campaign finance management.
government has become like an elite game of musical chairs. they bounce around high level positions until the money stops.
then people wonder why nothing ever changes.

How, specifically, would Hillary Clinton heading up the WB advance any sort of agenda? The current President, Robert Zoellic (nominated by Bush), was previously a managing director of Goldman Sachs, United States Deputy Secretary of State and U.S. Trade Representative, from February 7, 2001 until February 22, 2005. The President before him was Paul Wolfowitz. I fail to see how Clinton would be ANY different than them.
So, again, how is this the 'next phase' , assuming it's even true?edit on 9-6-2011 by incrediblelousminds because: (no reason given)
