Mubarak to Step Down

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak looked likely to step down on Thursday after more than two weeks of protests against his 30-year rule, Reuters reported. Sen. Bernie Sanders said the development was due to the “extraordinary uprising” by hundreds of thousands of Egyptian demonstrators “who took to the streets to say that after 30 years of autocratic rule they want democracy.”  In an interview on Vermont Public Radio, Sanders cautioned that the path to democracy in Egypt is not going to be easy.
