President Obama Urges Mubarak to Make "the Right Decision"

Embracing an Egyptian future without Hosni Mubarak, President Barack Obama on Friday pressed the embattled leader to consider his legacy and exit office in a way that would give his country the best chance for peace and democracy.

Obama tried to rally world pressure on Mubarak to make "the right decision" but did not call for his immediate resignation.

US President Barack Obama Friday delivered a clear hint that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak should step down now, saying the proud "patriot" should listen to his people and make the "right decision." Obama did not explicitly call on Mubarak to resign, but said the Arab strongman had already made the psychological leap of realizing his rule was ebbing, and now should reconsider his position amid a mass uprising.
