Mubarak Resigns; Leaves Cairo

By on 2.11.11 | 10:19AM

It appears that Hosni Mubarak has resigned as President of Egypt as he has left Cairo.

When Mubarak announced on February 1st that he would not seek another term in office in September I asked, "Do you think Egyptians are prepared to put up with Mubarak for six more days much less six more months?"

O.K., it was ten days. But you get my point.

So now comes the $64.37 question. Will it be enough to mollify the people of Egypt until elections are held?

Does anyone think it's a bad omen Mubarak leaves office 32 years to the day the Shah of Iran left office?
