Amr Hamzawy Forming New Party

More Egypt: the Carnegie Endowment's man in Beirut, Amr Hamzawy, who with Michele Dunne in Washington has made Carnegie a go-to place for Egypt, has been back in Cairo since the revolution and has now announced the formation of a new Egyptian Liberal Democratic Party.

Sometimes Think Tank democracy activists go beyond just Thinking.

Politics is breaking out in Egypt. Again, I'm not seeking to overemphasize Egypt, but a whole lot of stuff is happening there, as the revolution starts to feel its way forward, sometimes with and sometimes independent of the Army. And most of the world isn't noticing.
