Obama in Egypt: A Question

Although I'll weigh in myself soon on the upcoming Cairo speech of Barack Obama, I've been talking about it with friends and am intrigued at the the range of reactions. So two questions to readers:

1. Where in Egypt do you think Obama should speak?

2. What do you think he needs to talk about?
