Clinton to name North Korea Envoy.. on Friday? in New York?

Just read an article on Huff Post saying that Secretary Clinton is looking to appoint her special envoy to deal with U.S. policy on North Korea before she leaves to Asia next week. This appointment will demonstrate the Obama administration's commitment to addressing North Korea's nuclear weapons program.

Stephen Bosworth is said to have been offered the job. Don't know him? Me either! So let's find out.. He was a senior State Department official and a three time U.S. ambassador. Most recently to South Korea, then the Philippines, and initially to Tunisia. Bosworth currently is dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, near Boston (where Tony Blair recently gave a speech while in the U.S. on the struggle for peace).

She may make the announcement on Friday in New York. Where she is to give a speech outlining the administration's view of Asia and its growing global importance. I am curious about this speech in New York... I'll be staying tuned to hear more about that fo sho!
