Bush to name special representative for Myanmar

President George W. Bush intends to nominate one of his former senior Asia advisers as special representative for the military-run country of Myanmar. The White House said Monday that Bush will nominate Michael Green to the position. Green is an analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and a professor at Georgetown University. Green would have to be confirmed by the Senate, but it is unclear when that might happen. Lawmakers and the White House are dealing with an economic crisis during Bush's last weeks in office.
