President Barack Obama makes his first post-election trip to Asia this week. It will be the first time a sitting American president goes to Myanmar, also known as Burma, where opposition leaders like Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi have been pushing for democracy. The president's trip also includes stops in Thailand and Cambodia, where he will attend this year's East Asia Summit.
