IMO, unless there's a better alternative, Suleman is the guy. Sure, Hosni Junior (Kamal, or Jamal or Gamal or something) is more palatable to the West, and to the Egyptian businessfolk, but perhaps the citzenry won't take to well to someone inheriting power via bloodline? Also, Suleman as I understand it would have better luck with the military and intel services vis a vis loyalty.

The vast majority of that country is dirt poor. I bet they do want neither Mubarak jr. nor that Sulayman chap. But that's what they will get. If there were 'free elections', I guess the Muslim Brotherhood would win by a landslide. People are probably pretty much fed-up with all the corruption and misery.

OTOH, Mubarak sr. is a vigorous old chap. He might as well live up to 100. That would be another 18 years in power.
