    to settle for a lousy triple ;)

    That said, I'm not sure who in the US would have a good combination of passion, profile and experience. None of the publicly named candidates in the US (Sachs, Kerry, Susan Rice, Indra Nooyi, Summers) seemed to have all the requisite skills.

    Dr. Kim is perhaps better than most of them; Hillary could have been equally good (with completely different skills/profile) if she had wanted the job.

    Joe Stiglitz (if he wanted the job) would be better than Dr Kim (IMHO) but then Stiglitz himself said that the ideal candidate would come from the developing world ....
