EGYPT--Too Soon to Call
To those loyal Hedgehog readers posed at the edge of their seats waiting for a meaningful comment on the resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, the Kosher Hedgehog believes it's simply too soon for meaningful punditry. I already outlined the possible outcomes back on January 30 ("Woody Hayes, Hosni Mubarak and the future of Egypt"). To the three alternatives I listed in that article, I would add the possibility of a military dictatorship essentially similar to the Mubarak regime, with only the face of the ultimate leader having changed. It will be a year or more before we have any idea how this will all sort out. Let's talk then.
