From the Department of The Times They Are A-Changing:

So in today's news from Egypt, the leader of the new Muslim Brotherhood government that won the election has decided to go with a female Christian as his Vice-President, as a sign of inclusiveness for the new Egyptian government. I admit that this could sound a little bit like Tokenism, but I think if it was necessary to find an Alan Colmes style "safe" Christian that the Muslim Brotherhood would have chosen a man. So this is actually a positive sign that the Muslim Brotherhood may really have changed for the better.
