Democracy in action… tentatively

12.15.05

Say what you like about the mess in Iraq, but when turnout in Iraqi elections exceeds turnout in most North American elections, that’s saying something. After all, we don’t have to take our lives in our hands to go vote.

We can’t be naive and assume that the mere fact that today’s election took place means that democracy will take firm root in Iraq. But it’s a beginning. Baby steps.
