Ye Old Switcheroo

Who said that Republicans aren't interchangeable? Well, at least he knew where they had an opening.
Zoellick to resign from State Department - - "Zoellick, who served six years in the Bush administration, will join the investment house Goldman Sachs Group Inc., said a senior official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was expected to make the announcement later Monday.

Zoellick, 52, a former U.S. trade representative, reportedly wanted to be promoted to treasury secretary to replace departing secretary John Snow, but President Bush nominated Goldman Sachs executive Henry Paulson instead."
Taking his marbles and off to make scads of money, just like everyone else. Hopefully he will do a better job at Goldman Sachs than he did at State.
He has been the administration's leading diplomat handling the volatile situation in Sudan's western Darfur region, where at least 180,000 have died since villagers began an uprising in 2003.

Zoellick has also been the State Department's chief diplomat dealing with China.
Running off and leaving two jobs half done because he didn't get the promotion he wanted, not that he was doing such a great job at either. Maybe that was the reason for being passed over.
