    On one hand, we demand and rant about fair US elections and about the principle of democracy and yet on the other, many hope for failure of the same principles in Iraq?  

    I hate the war, the policies, the whole thing.  But I would actually like to see a democratic model in Iraq work.  I believe it to be in our interest in the long term and it may be the only way to instigate revolution in other autocratic states.

    Time will tell if this was a success.  I wouldn't go out and declare another "mission accomplished" yet (opps, too late) but I am encouraged to see some form of Iraqi self-rule.
