The Pressure Mounts on Mubarak and Obama

Hosted by

The crowds in Egypt today were bigger than ever, a "remarkable tapestry," a crowd "far bigger and more tumultuous than any in the previous week," according to the New York Times, "from young women with babies to old men with canes." The Army paved the way for the so-called "march of millions" by saying it would not fire on demonstrators and calling their demands "legitimate." The new vice president offered negotiations but, speaking for the protesters, Mohamed ElBaradai said they won't talk until President Hosni Mubarak leaves the country. What else do they want? What's the fallout in other Middle Eastern countries? And, what is the Obama Administration planning to do now?
