Pushing out Mubarak

Today on American Morning, Kiran Chetry talks with James Rubin, former U.S. assistant secretary of state and current executive editor of the The Bloomberg View. Rubin's wife is ABC News' Christiane Amanpour, whose car was attacked while reporting in Egypt.

Rubin says Mubarak's tactics to attack protesters and round up journalists were not successful. Protesters today show that this "really is the end for Mubarak," Rubin tells Chetry.

    Time to get the fk out of dodge Mr Mubarak before it gets even uglier. The good of the country is the most imortant thing. May God bring peace and stability to thier troubled nation. I do feel this was necessary for the greater good of Egypt.

    He was a great freind of the American government, and that's not saying much. We americans need to be much better stewards of how our elected officials takes care of our business, responsiblity begins with us. Very, very sorry Egypt please forgive the USA.

    On second thought, Egypt needs a strong U.S. ally ; a man that helps Egyptians, but works with America to help keep the region stable. I can't believe my earlier post; what was I thinking? VERITAS, you just may be a bit too harsh on Mubarak.

    This is getting a bit more ustjecbive, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
