For those checking in on the blog now, I’ll be talking about Wolfowitz and the state of play now at 6:30 pm EST on The Rachel Maddow Show.
It’s been quiet today — but Tuesday is the new deadline for Wolfowitz to make his case. And Wednesday is thought by most to be the day to watch for fireworks.
Reuters has just reported that more than half of the World Bank’s board wants Wolfowitz out.
Can you imagine what a purge of personnel there will be and how much recrimination and vengeful acts will be pursued if the effort to oust Wolfowitz fails? Everyone in this battle is playing for keeps.
