It gets better however. Al Hayat's Muhammad Salah reports today that a Web site belonging to the "Peaceful Popular Front to Save Egypt" has launched a campaign urging Amr Moussa, the Arab League's Secretary General, to run for president of Egypt. Moussa has yet to respond.
So the candidate count to date includes: Saad Eddin Ibrahim, Nawal Al Saadawi, Muhammad Farid Hassanein, Yissry Al Sayid Mitwalli, and... we're waiting for a response from Amr Moussa. But I wouldn't hold my breath on that last one. I have a suspicion that running for president in Egypt is going to become the chic thing to do in 2005.
