Bush says replacing Greenspan will be hard

US president Bush said in an interview on Wednesday 8 Junethat finding a replacement for Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan is going to be a tough job.

"First of all, Alan Greenspan has indicated that he is going to finish his term. And then we'll find a suitable replacement. Hopefully somebody as good as Alan Greenspan but that will be hard to do," Bush said in an interview on Fox News Channel.

Asked if he would consider a Democrat, Bush replied: "we'll consider somebody who can do the job."
