  •  If Clinton seeks old friend for interim ruler... (0+ / 0-)

    Dr. Jehan Sadat is in Maryland, ready to be cast as the new Mrs. Aquino.  At 77 she wouldn't want to stay on, and she's on record in 2009 as still supporting the peace accords.  AFAIK she's not reputed to have ordered any killings or socked away piles of money (and whatever sins she committed would've been 30 years ago.)  She's secular, a well-known feminist, and her name is synonymous with Camp David, all of which would reassure those fearing the MB.    

    Personally, I think the Egyptian people should make their own selection, but if the US has to have a comforting transitional figure, recommending Dr. Sadat would be 10,000 times better than Torture & Treachery Guy.

    •  Which *should not* be done (0+ / 0-)

      I had hoped that went without saying, but I was mistaken.

      1) Repeat, US should not decide.  

      2) If it is true that US supports Soleiman, why go automatically and without thought to the least appetizing choice available?

      The last is the point I was trying to make; perhaps that's all I should have typed.  Sorry.
