Lost Causes 101: A Gamal Mubarak Candidacy?

Supporters of Gamal Mubarak are organizing to promote him as a candidate for the Egyptian Presidency.

Outside his circle of young, nouveaux riches businessmen, there was never much evidence of popular support for Gamal. Of course, in those days "one man, one vote" meant one man (Gamal's father) had the only vote. Now that there's a broader field in play, I think Gamal has more to worry about from having his bank accounts investigated than running a campaign.
