Rachel Maddow On Egypt: 'This Is A Berlin Wall Moment' (VIDEO)

Rachel Maddow called the current situation in Egypt a "Berlin Wall moment" as she watched the electrifying pictures of the crowds in Cairo anticipating the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak on Thursday.

"To see this kind of exuberance and joy...when you look at it sort of glass half full, it's a Berlin Wall kind of moment," she said. These are images we never thought we'd see in our lifetime."

She added, though, that it was completetly unclear what could happen if, for instance, Vice President Omar Suleiman takes Mubarak's place.

"It is a dangerous moment, it is a beautiful moment, but the world will never be the same," she said.
