Something About Egypt

The best Egypt analysis in the blogosphere is found at The Arabist Network, where today Charles Levinson notes that a contested election doesn't necessarily mean big changes, as people in places like Zimbabwe and Algeria can attest. In order for this to matter, there needs to be either a significant alternative candidate such as Amr Moussa or the combination of massive popular discontent with Mubarak that could rally around a united opposition front. An election between Mubarak and miscellaneous other people isn't going to cut it.
