An aid to Hosni Mubarak is now running for the Presidency of Egypt, a move that his opponents and many of the rebels say is an insult. They (probably rightly) see the guy as a continuation of the status quo that they defeated and some have suggested the revolts would restart should he somehow win.

The road away from tyranny is harder to go down than it seems sometimes.

Rather him than someone in or closely aligned and/or compassionate to the Muslim Brotherhood.

As the old saying goes; Better the devil you know than the one you do not.

In my opinion the " revolts" were always going to start again. Yes they all wanted to push Mubarak out. But too many people had too many ideas of where they were going from there. They were all talking about what they "wanted" and not listening to what others expected.
