Opposition leader Benazir Bhutto returned to Pakistan today after eight years in exile. She was greeted by enthusiastic crowds estimated at over 200,000 people. She had an op-ed piece in the Boston Globe today on her hopes for bringing democracy and equal rights to her country. It's here. Eight hours into the celebrations of her return, bomb blasts killed more than 100 people and injured more than 250. NYT report is here. Bhutto was not injured in the explosions.

We've always admired Bhutto -- You know, chick leader, cool eyewear, and a commitment to fair elections -- What's not to love? We wish her well. Plus, the pics are awesome.
