Mubarak steps down, cedes control to VP, military

Celebration broke out following a historical 18-day protest, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has stepped down and handed his reins over to the vice president and the military, according to recent reports from the New York Times, CNN and Forbes, among many others.

His staunch refusal to resign until the September elections reversed about an hour ago when an announcement made by Vice President Omar Suleiman — who has frequently been deemed by the people to be nothing more than a puppet for Mubarak — told the public of Mubarak’s decision and his departure to his coastal resort home in Sharm el-Sheik.

Will this signify change for the Egyptian people? If so, will the change be a good one? Discuss.
