A victory for the Pakistani people

Yousaf Gilani, the husband of Benazir Bhutto and Pakistan's new Prime Minister, has bowed to pressure from the Pakistani people and re-instated a Supreme Court Justice that Musharraf had removed. Gilani pledged to do so during the election but has never kept his word until opposition leaders organized mass demonstrations over the weekend.

Given that one of those leaders, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, has been talking about "revolution," hopefully Gilani's move will reduce tensions there.
