Next steps

If Mubarak had resigned yesterday, then Suleiman could have taken over. But because Mubarak was, as someone said yesterday, a "stubborn old man", it took the Army to finally get him out. Likely, in the process, Suleiman has been totally discredited too -- though perhaps that is no loss.
But I think now the democracy movement in Egypt will find their next challenge will be to get the Army out.
