this afternoon. officers eventually called for backup. about about 0 ---- 30 about officers responded. one officer was slightly hurt. no word on what started the fight. well, the pentagon has just ordered some war ships to the red sea just in case they need to evacuate americans from egypt. an aircraft carrier is sticking around in the eastern mediterraneanian tonight. that as the egyptian military appear to take a side in the struggle. >> reporter: what a difference 24 hours makes. instead of running street battles, demonstrators this morning found smiling soldiers working with opposition organizers to set up check points so no trouble makers got in. if there was any doubt which side the army was on, this mob of hosni mubarak supporters was left on the outside looking in,
blocked by tanks. today the square felt like the safest place in cairo, with an air of celebration. but the underlying anger with hosni mubarak hasn't gone away. >> he's dealing with us like a group of animals, not people. >> reporter: option organizers call this the day of departure . they asked for hundreds of thousands to come out. they got the numbers they hoped for. the question is will it be enough to force hosni mubarak out? there are people in egypt who are pushing for a compromise, a group of wished egyptian ---- distinguished egyptians has a proposal. for hosni mubarak to remain president until elections this fall but stripped of power. his vice president would take over immediately, the
parliament would be dissolved and the protestors would get amnesty. it's hard to believe the people in this crowd would buy into any deal for hosni mubarak to remain president even if it's only in name. and obama obama administration officials tell the "new york times" about some of the possible exit strategies given to egypt's president. among them, going to his home or going to germany for a medical checkup. well conditioning -- congresswoman gabrielle giffords is recovering so well, that her husband has decided to go back into space. astronaut mark kelly is set to command adults ---- a shuttle mission this april. he's been on leave since his last was shot in the head last month during that shooting rampage in tucson. >> i know her very well and she would be very comfortable with

just over a year ago. she says he made a vow. >> to me, it was saying that he was truly committed, so to think he might be leaving, i was just kind of on the fence. i mean, i really didn't want him to leave. >> reporter: so she sketched his vow out, had preschoolers hold the word then sent this photo to batts hoping the chief to his word. it apparently worked. >> my staff can show you that the preschoolers sent this. it touched my heart. >> reporter: just watch their interaction right in front of tv news cameras. batts peers through his fingers in what appears to be glances of indig nation. is it the universal language of eye rolling? she never looks at the chief.
