Tariq Ali on Bhutto's Death

This piece probably nails the implications of Bhutto's death best. A sample:
"Benazir's horrific death should give her colleagues pause for reflection. To be dependent on a person or a family may be necessary at certain times, but it is a structural weakness, not a strength for a political organisation."
(Via Dennis Perrin who points out how most US coverage seems to see this as a political football for the primary season.)
