That's why I like the idea of being a journalist. I could end up being around during these types of world changing events.
I want to be there as a doctor--to see and help in every way possible.
What I think would be best is the current president staying in power while elections for an intermediate government are held post-haste. Then once they're complete, that government would figure out how they're going to do elections, etc. During this time, hopefully a few possible leaders will emerge. Then just hold the elections.
Well, if I remember correctly, the problem emerging was that no one would go up against presidents--and those who did had a strange habit of disappearing. I'm not sure if it applies to Egypt, but I know it has in other similar states.
