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.
