President Obama on Egypt

It has been a captivating day, watching history unfold in Egypt. Speaking this afternoon, President Obama congratulated the Egyptian people on making their voices heard, and continued to call for a peaceful transition to democracy.

A video of his remarks is here, and the full text is here.  This was my favorite passage:

Above all, we saw a new generation emerge, a generation that uses their own creativity and talent and technology to call for a government that represented their hopes and not their fears. A government that is responsive to their boundless aspirations. One Egyptian put it simply -- most people have discovered in the last few days that they are worth something, and this cannot be taken away from them anymore. Ever.
