Both the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times reported today that Robert Zoellick may jump from the goodship Bush Administration for a post at a Wall Street firm. He's been spotted at Merrill and Goldman. Supposedly Zoellick is disapointed that he hasn't been offered the job as Treasury Secretary.
This makes sense. But there might be a simpler answer. Look at the shape of this administration. Would you stick around until the bitter end?
