Good Luck to Iraqis!

In tomorrow’s elections. I have to say that despite a great deal of skepticism in the feasibility, and disappointment over the execution, of Bush’s vision for the Middle East, it represents the one of the core American beliefs. Lincoln called the ideas of democracy the last, best hope of mankind, and in that, he was right. Democracy represents a belief that we can peacefully work together and find ways to allow each of us to pursue our own dreams. I hope that tomorrow, hope will overcome fear, and we’ll see a strong turnout, no violence, and the start of a legitimate government in Iraq.
