WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is calling on Egypt to move toward an orderly transition to democracy, but says there's a long way to go.

Clinton tells "Fox News Sunday" that the situation in Egypt is volatile and complex, as protestors continue to swarm into the streets.

While noting that President Hosni Mubarak has finally appointed a vice president, she says the U.S. also does not want to see a takeover of the government in Egypt that would lead to oppression.

The State Department says U.S. citizens in Egypt should consider leaving the country as soon as they can because of the spreading unrest there, and other countries were doing the same.
