In Sausalito overlooking S.F. Bay with my uncle, Lucky Strike nonfilters and a case of Bud. Those splendid days are long gone.

Of course the difference with Egypt as opposed to Algeria or going back to the Green revolution of Iran, is that our 30 years of aid give us leverage with the Mubarak regime.

As easy as it appears that the US should tell Mubarak to hand over the country and let Suleiman or the military oversee an interim government until the fall elections, I think there's a very limited audience complicating that conversation.

People like King Abdullah of Jordan. I bet he's really interested to see how the Obama administration deals with this. (The US doesn't really like to talk about how they pushed the Native Americans off the continent, either.)
