Bob Zoellick is the new guy at the World Bank

Bob ZoellickAmerican president Bush nominated Bob Zoellick (former US Trade Representative and Deputy Secretary of State) to replace Paul Wolfowitz at the World Bank (ABC).
For Euronews, Zoellick is a low key guy: if honesty and the absence of charisma were key criteria in the choice, then Washington has certainly found its man. For The Scotsman, Zoellick has a reputation as being extremely demanding but he is also seen as a consensus builder. Zoellick vows to reunite World Bank, says Financial Times. For Financial Express, Zoellick may prove Wolfowitz antidote as World Bank chief .
