Welcome Muslim Brotherhood, To Legitimacy

I'm sure this has nothing to do with Glen Beck's last episode being aired:
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday that U.S. officials intend to build contacts with Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, a sign of American concern that the conservative Islamic group is becoming one of the most important political forces in the post-Mubarak order.

Speaking to reporters in Budapest, Hungary, Clinton said that "given the changing political landscape in Egypt…it is in the interests of the United States to engage with all parties that are peaceful, and committed to nonviolence, that intend to compete for the parliament and the presidency."

The Obama administration has indicated since the uprising early this year that it sees a legitimate role for the group in Egyptian politics.
Way to legitimize them Hillary.  This can only go well.  By well, I mean not so good.
