If Aung San Suu Kyi succeeds in amending Myanmar's constitution so that she can run for president, she'll undoubtedly become the frontrunner in 2015. But she still could face stiff competition from current President Thein Sein, according to Asia Society's Suzanne DiMaggio.
In a landmark appearance at Asia Society headquarters in New York on Thursday, Myanmar President Thein Sein said that his country has left behind its authoritarian government and that the road to democracy was irreversible.
