Clinton to urge completion of Egypt's transition
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will urge Egypt's civilian and military leaders to work together to complete a full transition to democratic rule, U.S. officials said on Saturday.     "She is going to say: 'You have to stick with it. You have to keep going'," a senior U.S. official told reporters.

    "She will encourage Tantawi, as she will encourage Mursi, and civil society, to engage in that dialogue and to avoid the kinds of confrontation that could potentially lead to the transition veering off track."     The official was referring to President Mohamed Mursi, sworn in as Egypt's new head of state on June 30, and Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, head of the powerful council of army generals that steered the post-Hosni Mubarak transition, who she is due to meet during a trip to Cairo.
