All this talk about making the world safe for democracy- this is the example to be set. Our government failed us and then made amends. It's been fixed. Shout that from the mountain-tops, and down in the caves and the huts where our boogeymen lurk. It's not every day our fundamental freedoms win in a fight- but it's a hell of a lot oftener than any other form of Government allows.
Go into Iraq, and show them this- this is the strength of our Republic. Broadcast into the openly displayed, yet illegal satellite television receivers in Iran, and make the Mullahs cry like little girls in private, and spout invective in public.
As noble a goal as fostering democracy around the world is, that work starts at home, and today, the American people have done more to achieve that than any invasion ever could.
