ABC News - Wolfowitz to Resign This Afternoon?

May 16 2007-World Bank officials say the bank's board is completing an "exit strategy" that will allow World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz to resign this afternoon and "still save some face"... The decision is likely today, officials say, because Wolfowitz had been scheduled to leave tonight for a European trip.

Dear PW:

Re: Oil of Oy Vey,
Face Saving Creme

I heard that you have a big need for saving face this afternoon.

May I suggest you try a new product that our firm want to introduce to the Bush-Cheney market.

The product is formulated to save the face of officials and party operatives who are desperately in need of either saving face or for those who have lost face, to stimulate the growth of a new face.

It is a colorless, odorless, water based product that is applied to the affected facial areas.

Used liberally rather than conservatively, it promotes the growth of new facial tissue, thickens the skin, and inhibits the formation of tears except for the crocodile variety.

For skin damaged by attacks on integrity and honor, this creme offers DENIAL(TM), a proprietary ingredient that rejects rotten eggs, tomatoes, and other objects thrown at your face.

A proprietary ingredient called DEFRAUD(TM) protects the wearer against thinning skin caused by repeated ethical, legal and contract violations. It is especially effective for those who are intellectually dishonest.

Finally, the creme is fortified with PARDON(TM) for those severe cases where no amount of work can save the hide, such as those who have been convicted of offenses by the Ad Hoc Group.

I am hoping that you would use this product that we will provide to you at no cost, and allow us to use your likeness and endorsement of our product in our promotional literature.

Given the impressive prestige and name recognition you bring to this product, and your well recognized need for this product, your endorsement of this product will enable us to offer you a mutually beneficial partnership.

In addition to free product, we are prepared to pay you a 'speakers fee' that you are allowed to earn under your IBRD contract for promoting our products.

Indeed, we can even arrange to roll up the travel expenses into the speakers fee, allowing you to pocket the entire amount if you have other Bank commitments that allow you to travel to our promotions at their expense.

We believe that there is a considerable market for this product in Washington, with exceptionally strong demand in the Justice Department, the White House, and the Republican National Committee. Once we established a strong presence in these markets, it is our goal to reach out to Democrats and Independents, and then, through your contacts at the World Bank, the world.

Please contact us at your earliest opportunity so we can arrange to have product delivered to you.

Here is a problem on Tradesport.

What if PW does not resign and have to be fired?

Who wins?

By my read, no one wins the bet.


Here is my prediction:

Negotiations for his resignation will break down, leading to the board to terminate his employment no later than noon, Wednesday.

Bloomberg also is saying that the WH and the Board are negotiating"are negotiating President Paul Wolfowitz's departure from the world's biggest aid agency.
Eli Whitney Debevoise II, who represents the U.S. on the bank's board, is discussing terms for the resignation with a panel of directors that admonished Wolfowitz for his role in a pay raise for his partner, said one of the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity. ABC News reported that Wolfowitz may leave today. Debevoise wasn't immediately available for comment."
