Meanwhile, Back in Iraq, Unreported Good News Continues to Develop


Power Line has the latest interesting set of interviews with Iraqi voters here. An excerpt:

Mr. Abed Azuhra said: "I will participate in the elections because they are free and fair. Then we asked, "How do you know they are fee and fair?" His answer:

"I have seen the previous elections, they were mandatory, with only existing government officials on the ballot and only one president 'Saddam.' The baathists cut our rations if we did not vote. There has been a fundamental change in Iraqi government, this government is for the people. This government invites and asks us to vote they do not threaten us. I wish the security situation were better. But it will not stop me from voting."

Wow, maybe we should try that "invites and asks us to vote" thing here. It probably works better than the "challenge anyone who looks like a Democrat" system.

John: I am not sure what you are talking about. Can you point to any evidence that such things went on in the 2004 election, to any significant extent?
