With An Endorsement Like This...

Asked whether Wolfowitz should stay in his job, Cheney, in an interview with Fox News in Aqaba, Jordan, replied "I do."

The vice president went on to praise Wolfowitz, who was the No. 2 official at the Pentagon and an architect of the U.S.-led Iraq war, before he took the bank's helm in June 2005.

"I think Paul is one of the most able public servants I've ever known, and I've worked with him a lot over the years," Cheney said. "I think he's a very good president of the World Bank, and I hope he will be able to continue."

I think Wolfowitz may not have wanted this particular vote of confidence right now.
