Trickle into a Flood ?

Mona Makram Ebeid was in Washington DC today. She indicated that she is switching her support from Aboul Fotouh to Amr Moussa, due mostly to the Salafi endorsement of Aboul Fotouh.  She is a formidable person in her own right, but also the scion of a prominent Coptic political family. She has always championed citizenship rights over sectarian thinking. Her public endorsement of Aboul Fotouh was an indication that he might pick up a significant fraction of secular Copts.  It is fair to say that is no more.  It seems more desertions maybe in the offing.
