Unrest in Egypt: Should the US Take Sides?

Hosted by

People's Revolt in Egypt Continues to 'Snowball'The Obama Administration appears to be distancing itself from Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, after 30 years of support in the name of "regional stability." Protesters want much more. Tomorrow, they hope to raise more than a million people to demand that Mubarak step down. New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof once lived in Cairo and he's back there now, talking to demonstrators and checking out his old neighborhood.  We update the crisis with  Kristof and others, and learn what the US can do now to stay on "the right side of history."
