"Hope is not a plan"

The liberal and enlightened forces in Egypt, real and inspiring though they are (and I’ve met many wonderful Egyptians),
are too weak and too inexperienced to have much chance of holding onto power when and if the government crumbles away. Egypt’s problems are too daunting, its militants too strong and too well organized, its civil society is too deeply divided between Islamists and liberals, and its civic and religious life has been too deeply wounded to make the emergence of moderate, forward looking and constructive governance look likely right now. There is nothing wrong with hoping that something better may come, and I do, but hope is not a plan. -- The Revolution Wanders From The Script | Via Meadia

Somebody better enlighten that fool in DC that Hope isn't a plan and that Change pretty much sucks too!

You can not enlighten fools. Being a fool is a permanent state of being.
