Mubarak reigns! Elections to follow?

Mubarak resigns and the military is in charge in Egypt!  Freedom has triumphed - as long as they set up systems and institutions to foster democratic parties and elections...or is this just another tyrannical coup?  

I think the revolution has gone too far too fast to be stopped, and that the road to a representative democracy is being taken.  As we know from history, this doesn't happen all at once, but is a process.  I wish them Godspeed.
