World Bank, Wolfowitz discussing his exit

President wants face-saving deal, ability to leave on his own terms

Wolfowitz and the Bush administration were seeking a face-saving deal with the board that would allow him to resign under his own terms and escape some blame for the furor involving his girlfriends compensation.

President Bush on Thursday seemed resigned to the possibility that World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz could lose his job over conflict-of-interest charges involving his girlfriend.

I regret that it has come to this, Bush said during a press conference for British Prime Minister Tony Blairs final White House visit of his tenure as Prime Minister. I admire Paul Wolfowitz ... I admire his focus on helping the poor. Bush also said Wolfowitz has the banks best interests at heart.
