I don't want to be cynical and spoil the glow of the moment, as I really can empathize with the Egyptian heroes of the day (ah, what the hell), but what evidence is there that Hosni has actually given up the REIGNS of power? All the military men and ministers are his "poodles," as the Wikileaks memos noticed, and he can just as easily call the shots from his palatial resort dacha by the Red Sea as Al Capone did from inside Alcatraz. If I were one of the street-based organizers, I wouldn't relax my guard after tonight's fireworks have died down. It's a fragile moment in time, and power (backed by billions of dollars) rarely just gives up and goes away. They've played the playbook step by step, until now, and the final feint may be just what happened today. Follow the money, and whether Mobarak stays in Egypt or leaves, and whether he's charged and tried and convicted.

That should be the "reins" of power, but we still don't know who "reigns" in Egypt today or tomorrow.
