    Ex-HP Chief in
    Running to Head World Bank

    WASHINGTON  – Carly Fiorina, the recently ousted chief
    executive of Hewlett-Packard Co., is in the running to be the next president of
    the World Bank, a Bush administration official said Tuesday.

    Fiorina’s name is the latest to
    surface as a candidate to replace World Bank President James Wolfensohn.He is
    stepping down as head of the development bank on June 1 at the end of his second

    The Bush

    said it would talk to other countries that belong to the 184-nation World Bank.

    Rob Nichols, spokesman for the
    Treasury Department, which is involved in the search, declined to comment on
    candidates for the post.He said the administration wanted to name a replacement
    before Wolfensohn’s term ends.

    CEOs in the country. During her nearly six-year tenure, she sought to
    reinvigorate the company. But the board felt she didn’t execute its strategy

    spokeswoman, Kathy Fitzgerald, said Fiorina had no comment.

    names floated for the World Bank job include: John Taylor, the Treasury
    Department’s undersecretary for international affairs; Peter McPherson, the
    former head of Michigan State University who served as Bush’s point man on
    rebuilding Iraq’s financial system; Randall Tobias,Bush’s global AIDS
    coordinator;and Christine Todd Whitman, the former head of the Environmental
    Protection Agency.

    United States is the World Bank’s largest member nation. The bank traditionally
    has had an American president. Its sister institution, the International
    Monetary Fund,traditionally has been headed by a European
