WASHINGTON — US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Sunday called on Egypt to move toward an orderly transition to democracy, but said there is still a long way to go.

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

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