Clinton to Visit Myanmar

Just hours before Daw Aung San Suu Kyi announced her return to politics, President Obama said he was sending Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on a visit to Myanmar next month, the New York Times reports.

"The twin events underscored the remarkable and sudden pace of change in Myanmar, which has stunned observers inside and outside the country, analysts said."

The Washington Post notes "the two-day trip, starting Dec. 1, would mark the first visit by a U.S. secretary of state in 50 years."
