Pakistan's "democratic" Opposition

Here's a piece that makes order out of the very confusing situation in
Pakistan.  It's by Jo Johnson, also in Saturday's FT.  Well, not quite
order but understandable confusion.  About General Musharraf we know enough
not to admire him.  That the president seems to also hurts him with the
likes of us, probably much too reflexively.  This article in the FT lays
out the seedy character of Miss Bhutto's aristocratic "democratic" opposition.

And a wonderful article, both historic and analytic, by Jane Perlez in the
Times recalls why Pakistani democrats, for all their
loathing of Misharraf, have deep misgivings about Bhutto.
