I don't have anything to contribute except memories of media coverage in the distant past. In 1970, Nasser died. The general consensus in the American press was: "A titan of world history has died. The official successor, the little-known vice-president Anwar Sadat, is unlikely to last long." Then, in 1981, Sadat was assassinated, and the general consensus in the American press was: "A titan of world history has died. The official successor, the little-known vice-president Hosni Mubarak, is unlikely to last long."
