Watch Hillary Clinton delivering the latest word from the administration regarding the state of play in Egypt.  Note the massive change in tone and content from Joe Biden's remarks yesterday about Mubarak not being a dictator. The new pitch, you'll see, is that the pro-democratic boilerplate the administration has offered on ceremonial occasions over the last two years shows that it has been on the side of the democratic insurgents all along:

If you ask me, that’s a hard sell that the administration wouldn’t be attempting if it didn’t think that Mubarak is going down.
