NPR's Alex Chadwick talks with NPR Washington editor Ron Elving about President Bush's nomination of Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz to be the new head of the World Bank. Wolfowitz, a key proponent of the "neoconservative" political movement calling for a more aggressive U.S. foreign policy, is likely to be met with strong opposition by European nations opposed to the U.S.-led invasion and occupation of Iraq.
