Here's an interesting quote:

And get this: now that Ennahda is out, not a single post-Arab Spring country is ruled by Islamists. All of them are secular now.

That ... blows me away. It comes from Michael Totten (a Portlander), who you should be reading, and who isn't optimistic about the Arab Spring. Nevertheless, that quote just floors me, and moves me towards the optimistic end of the spectrum.
