Bhutto: Talks Continue on Pakistan Election

Pakistan's former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was in Washington, D.C., today to discuss upcoming elections in Pakistan. Bhutto, who leads the opposition Pakistan People's Party, plans to return to her home in mid-October, ending eight years of self-imposed exile.

Bhutto said she is hoping to run for office again, and has been negotiating with Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf about a power-sharing deal. The former leader indicated that those talks have not gone well.
