2 Democratic Victories

Victory #1: The Iraqi People having a Democratic Election
Yes this is good. However, it probably should not have happened with American military force. The Bush administration led America into this war based on WMDs. Suddenly there is a flip-flop. He realized his reason for going to war was totally false, so he is trying to put a positive spin on things by saying the intention of the war was to spread democracy.
I found out this morning that I have some agreement with Pat Buchanan. He states that the US cannot forcefully spread democracy to every country in the world. This is true. If Bush and his dummies believe this, our country will be at never ending war. Invading other countries is the best advirtisement for creating new terrorists.

Victory #2: Howard Dean, MD elected to chair of democratic party.
I believe this is a big victory for the democrats. Everyone is fearful that he is too much of a liberal to win over the country. First, he doesn't have to take over the country. He just has to be an organizer, which he does very effectively. Second, he's not that liberal. Look at his views and you'll see he's a fiscal conservative (unlike the current president). Thirdly, he won by getting votes from Southern Democrats, an area where the Dems need to expand.
Dr. Dean will put a spine back in the Democratic Party.
