Deal in Pakistan: President Musharraf to Resign?

There is huge news out of Pakistan today, with a news article that not only is Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf offering to resign in exchange for escaping culpability for his Declaration of Emergency back in November, there also are active talks on shortly putting together a deal that may lead to his exit.

Particularly angering some citizens and retired military officers is the fact that the President, who gave up his position as general to continue ruling the country, is still living in Army House in Rawalpindi.

We would note while that while political intrigue and rumor are always plentiful in Pakistan, Musharraf is a very upopular president. Since his brother is a physician in Chicago, its possible he could end up living here, where he would surely garner respect for his knack for political survival.
