NPR's Jacki Lyden profiles the man who will next lead Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai. He's the son of a parliamentarian and tribal chief, and average Afghans love him for his loyalty to country and his ease in both the traditional and modern worlds. Karzai's expected to be sworn in as the nation's interim prime minister this weekend.
