Wow!  Either a cheap public relations move or a great, beautiful piece of good news.

A political adviser of President-elect Mohamed Morsy said a Copt and woman would be appointed as vice presidents.

Ahmed al-Deif told CNN that it would be the first time in Egypt’s history that a woman would be appointed to this position that will be granted powers.

“We didn’t call for establishing an Islamic republic in Egypt. Morsy was very clear on this. He assured [he is] seeking a civilian constitutional country, a civilized one based on respecting cultures, principles and religions,” he added.

Some enthusiastic, some skeptical comments at bottom
