Wolfowitz and the World Bank

I haven’t really followed this very much, mainly because World Bank affairs are about as interesting as reading a phone book, but it seems Paul Wolfowitz has found himself in the middle of a Clintonesque scandal. I’m not sure if Wolfowitz was qualified in the first place to lead the body (mainly because I don’t care enough to find out).

Some are calling on him to resign. Wolfowitz calls it a smear campaign. I don’t doubt that there’s some truth to that, but when one promotes one’s girlfriend and gives her raises for no other reason that she is your girlfriend, I think you cede the moral high ground.
