Adil Najam, professor of public relations at Boston University, says Benazir Bhutto's death was as shocking to Pakistanis as John F. Kennedy's death was to Americans, but that it is consistent with how the country's leaders have left office.

Najam tells Robert Siegel that his country is a democratic society trapped in an undemocratic state.
