WASHINGTON (AP) - House Speaker John Boehner is praising the way the Obama administration is handling the situation in Egypt.
Boehner told Fox News that the U.S. needs to continue to support Egypt's move to democracy.
Another Republican, Sen. John McCain, isn't saying whether the U.S. should abandon its support of President Hosni Mubarak. But he tells CNN that America needs to "be on the right side of history" and do a better job of arguing for human rights.
The administration says it's looking for the protests in Egypt to lead to what it calls an "orderly" transition to "real democracy."
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told the Sunday interview shows that Egyptians need to "have a chance to chart a new future." She's not saying whether that future should include President Hosni Mubarak.
