The election of Egypt's first Islamist president poses a challenge for the Obama administration, which is grappling with the reality of embracing a leader whose worldview often has been at odds with Washington.
The United States faces many dangers in the Middle East with the eventual departure of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Washington analysts said Thursday, as chaos swept the streets of Cairo in a second week of massive demonstrations.
The U.S.-Egyptian relationship will be more complex for the simple reason that the administration in Washington is no longer dealing with one man in Cairo, said Khairi Abaza, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies in Washington.
"The U.S. will have to nurture relations with various political actors and negotiate its interests," he said. "The relationship might become a little more complex, but it can become a much healthier one."
