If the Fulbright committee is kind, then my sojourn in Egypt will coincide with this fall's election campaign. As al-Ahram Weekly reports, that could be an interesting experience. I don't know enough to really comment, but I feel like little will probably happen with the Egyptian political system. What stands out is the energy and organization of the current opposition forces who are trying to seize the moment of Mubarak's advancing age to force change.
