"The World Bank points to Clinton" Possible resignation as Secretary of State

The current U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, pointing to the presidency of the World Bank supports the Reuters news agency, citing at least three sources, but it is clear that the entourage of the former first lady the White House have denied the news. A denial could be tactical, not to undermine the credibility of Clinton as head of U.S. diplomacy. The Secretary of State, arrived at the White House after a disputed Barack Obama the Democratic nomination for president, has never made any secret of his intention to leave the State Department at the end of Obama's first term, which expires at the beginning 2013. But times may be shortened, as the term of the President of the World Bank, Bob Zoellick, expires in mid 2012 and is not intended to be reconfirmed.

"Hillary wants the job," said an anonymous source cited by Reuters. Clinton would be the first woman to get the job, a position that is traditionally assigned to the United States. The news of the interest of the former first lady for the position emerges as he discusses the future president of the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank's sister organization, after the resignation of Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

It is still unclear, he concludes, Reuters, if Obama is ready to propose the candidacy of Clinton. To replace the role of Secretary of State one of the favorites would be John Kerry, Democratic candidate for the White House in 2004, defeated by George W. Bush.
