Zimbabwe is saved!

It looks like Thabo Mbeki finally got a power-sharing deal between Robert Mugabe and Morgan Tsvangirai.

Odds of the US letting the perfect be the enemy of the good? Uh, 100%.

This raises an interesting point -- I'll call it the Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf conundrum. Poor Mr. Tsvangirai, after all his work, finally gets at least some say in running the country ... except he inherits a country with sextuple-digit inflation, a collapsed infrastructure and no food. Which begs the question... would why would you want to run Zimbabwe?
