    I cant be the only one sick of the 24/7 coverage of the happenings in Egypt by both Fox and CNN...enough already..there is other news in the world..really frustrating how the media takes a story and literally beats it to death just so they can cover it,scrutinize and analyze..I really dont care to see round the clock riots...and then the other alternative programming is doing the same thing about a football game between two teams where I have zero emotional attachment...

    Neither...even though they will never admit it, Middle Eastern cultures still look at women as property and dont show them the same respect as men..didnt Jimmy Carter get a Nobel Peace Prize for brokering a deal between Sadat and Begin, that lasted for days and then of course we have BHO who also received a Nobel Peace prize, for what I'm not sure..

    There's always Madeleine Albright. Bons, correct. They do not like dealing with women. Probably 'cause they know they can't win.

    Brent crude over $100. That's so cool! I'm sure that will help everybody unless you eat and heat. Thanks, Ben.

    I chose 'other' at this point. While Mubarak has been a semi-dictator, he is at least a secular leader. We will want no part of the Muslim Brotherhood who seems to be pushing ElBaradei - the former head of the UN's IAEA. The Muslim Brotherhood will give an outward appearance as moderate yet will be as radical as any of the jihad groups in the Middle East.

    Hard-line radical islamists consistently use the call for 'democracy" to seize power, then rule as a ruthless islamic state. Egyptians will think Mubarak was the picture of democracy, if that happens - especially since there is a much larger secular populace in Egypt versus other middle east countries with a much large western business presence. All this & probably the worse oil crisis we have yet seen. And BTW, the 2nd leader of al qaeda is Egyptian & a former member of the Muslim Brotherhood....

    A very good friend is from Egypt and tells me that if the Muslim Brotherhood gains legal status and is allowed to operate freely in Egypt, it will be another Iran. Secular intellectuals in Iran were used to depose the Shah of Iran during Jimmy Carter's presidency, then Khoemeini returned to Iran. He then proceded to kill, deport or jail the same secular intellectuals who brought down the Shah, and the world has been faced with radical jihad ever since.

    Unfortunately, I don't think the Obama Admin will provide any more leadership than did Carter and the world, as we know it & would like it (peaceful), will be forever worse for it.

    Good question.

    I would add Richard Cohen and Bill Clinton to the mix.

    And who negotiated the peace that has lasted up until this day?
