Wolfowitz at the World Bank door by Emad Mekay and Jim Lobe

Another neo-conservative expressed concern that Wolfowitz's departure from the Pentagon could dilute the administration's proclaimed commitment to democratic change. "The president has sent pretty clear messages about that, but the number of senior administration officials who truly believe in the [democratic] tenets of the Bush doctrine is relatively small," said Tom Donnelly, a national security analyst at the American Enterprise Institute. "I, for one, am a little nervous about how policy itself may change. He might rather have been secretary of state, but that job was already taken. This is an administration that has been sort of inbred and has relatively few individuals to move around to these jobs."
