Mr Obama has gotten his 'change thing' it seems.

Just not where he was looking for it.

'It's time to get behind it. Obama's choice, in Egypt and beyond, is no longer about whether to preserve stability or promote reform. The choice is to embrace change or be overrun by it. The forces unleashed in the Middle East may produce a generation of leaders that is less friendly to Washington than the current batch of autocrats. But the U.S. is better off welcoming the new democratic era than fearing it. Distancing ourselves from Mubarak and siding with the Egyptian people won't damage America's image in the Arab world; continuing to fail to live up to our values will. This President, after all, has already rejected the old strategic bargain, in which advancing U.S. interests required compromising on our ideals. As Obama said in his 2009 speech in Cairo, "America respects the right of all peaceful and law-abiding voices to be heard around the world, even if we disagree with them." He may never have a better opportunity to prove it.'
