Bush says next Fed chair named in appropriate time

US President George W. Bush said Tuesday that Alan Greenspan's replacement would be named "at an appropriate time," but he had not yet been given a list of prospective names.

"There is a group of people inside the White House who will bring forth nominees," Bush told a news conference in response to a question. "It's important that whomever I pick is viewed as independent from politics."

"I personally haven't seen any names yet," Bush said. "I'll name the person at an appropriate time."
