Whether it's Kerry or any of these bloggers, it would be the grownup, mature, generous, humanistic, caring -- yes, dare I say, liberal -- thing to do to be glad that people who lived under tyranny are now giving birth to democracy.
Democracy isn't a right-or-left thing, folks. It's a right-and-left thing, remember?
Jeff, you're dreaming, though I don't blame you for trying to include your fellow leftists in your embrace of liberalism. The Left, as described in virtually all Leftists sites over the last few days, and by Senators Kerry, Kennedy and Boxer, no longer embrace democracy as a good thing if it means any credit is likely to fall on President Bush. They have made it clear that they oppose Iraqi democracy. Just as clearly as the Iraqis have been in thanking Coalition soldiers and George Bush.
Come over to the dark side Jeff; you know you belong here.
