Iraq thirsts for democracy

These poll results from a newspaper in Baghdad illustrate the excitement of the Iraqi people for the upcoming elections. Click over to Power Line to see the poll results, but here is the question that struck me the most:
Do you think the elections will take place as scheduled?
Yes-------------------------------------------83%
No--------------------------------------------13%
Do not know---------------------------------4%
The guys over at Power Line properly point out that " the only people who want the elections postponed are the ones who want them never to take place." That is so true.

The spread of democracy in the Middle East is a good thing. We should do everything possible to support and advance this cause.
