It’s time for Congress to put the power of the purse into play to supplement its resolution supporting freedom and democracy in Egypt, or what I call the “terra-cotta revolution” in honor of Egypt’s glorious art history. Short of a blockade, this would persuade Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to step down.

This is about our common humanity with the Egyptian people. Mohamed ElBaradei, winner of the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize, is the logical choice to serve as interim president until proper elections can be held.
