Anne Krueger, Washington's most senior appointee to the International Monetary Fund, is the Al Haig of the Bush Administration. Krueger is a friend of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice going back to their days at Stanford University. At the IMF she has used the threat of resignation on a number of occasions as a negotiating ploy. But the string may be running out. A senior Bush Administration official recently voiced privately: "The next time she pulls that stunt and threatens to resign, we're going to accept it."
