Who knows whether initial estimates of 70% will hold up, but clearly the majority of Iraqis turned out in favor of democracy. John Kerry, on Meet the Press, councils caution in celebrating today as a victory as democracy. President Bush, on the other hand, called it a “resounding success.” The contrast between the two men has, perhaps, never been starker. Thank God for a leader willing to inspire through positive messages and an unwavering enthusiasm for what the country has undertaken.
