Big call given Mubarak will outlive all of us. RT @Bassem_Sabry: I would keep Mubarak in prison forever: Brotherhood candidate #Mursi

Here's my bet: if not a delay, Mubarak is guilty on one charge, likely Economic charges, not protester killing. Then he appeals for ages….

2- if my bet is correct, Shafiq could win elections, Mubarak gets no jail & not branded a "murderer," stays put, public moderately appeased.

So, I wonder what series of events the Shafiq campaign is hoping for today.

My guess for the optimal Mubarak sentence for the Shafiq campaign is 5-7 years. Enough to satisfy many and infuriate some.

Downtown Boursa cafe has flat screen TV hooked up to speakers outside for patrons to watch verdict in #Mubaraktrial http://t.co/KKE6UPvf

Loai El Deeb of Egyptian Network of Human Rights on ONTV saying Mubarak should have tried for stunting development for 30 years

ONTV says all defendants have arrived to #MubarakTrial except Mubarak. Then feed cuts at Boursa cafe.

Correspondent says security detail is searching people on road to police academy where #MubarakTrial is taking place.

About a dozen Boursa customers have arrived & crowded around TV to watch verdict in #MubarakTrial. Passersby are stopping to watch, too

Unclear what repercussions of any verdict in #MubarakTrial will be. I've spoken to many who say yes, he was corrupt. But to leave him alone.

Undoubtedly many who want to see justice in #MubarakTrial but whether or not Egypt has appetite for more protests is another question.

Perhaps more politically feasible are guilty verdicts+strong sentences for interior minister Habib El Adly, on trial for killing protestors

In January interview with head of Mubarak volunteer defense, he told me Hamas' Qassam Brigades were responsible for killing protestors.

Very imaginative story of Hamas militants coming through tunnels, stealing police cars in Arish, driving them to Cairo to kill protestors

Amir Salem, representing families of those killed in uprising, told me he does not expect death penalty for Mubarak. #MubarakTrial

Amir Salem said even if Mubarak is given death penalty, 'the military council will just wait for him to die' naturally #MubarakTrial

Helicopter carrying Mubarak to #MubarakTrial is arriving at police academy for historic (or not) verdict in Arab Spring.

ONTV correspondent says judge orders martyrs families to leave the courtroom - only those with permits allowed to stay for verdict

Most of those gathered at Boursa cafe to watch verdict in #MubarakTrial are young professionals

Just letting Mubarak live out the rest of his days in prison is a tempting idea, except for the fact Mubarak will outlive our children.

Mubarak does the sunglasses while lying in bed look better than anyone.

We're dealing with a man here who wears sunglasses in an ambulance. Never underestimate him.
