Obama: World 'can live together in peace'

Good morning.

As Morning Edition co-host Steve Inskeep said a short while ago, the story that the news media will be following all morning is the speech President Barack Obama is giving at Cairo University. Steve and NPR's Don Gonyea, who is in Cairo, talked this morning about what's expected. Don says the president will tell the Arab and Muslim worlds that they need to do more to allow true democracies to develop.
