Hurrah for the Iraqi people!

Busy family day, but still time to celebrate the bravery of the Iraqi people:

Millions of Iraqis turned out Sunday to cast ballots in the country's first free elections in a half-century, the ranks of voters surging as attacks by insurgents proved less ferocious than feared and enthusiasm spilled over into largely Sunni Arab regions where hardly a campaign poster had appeared.
Click here for the whole WaPo article. And hurrah for Bush for insisting on this moment (and feh! to the naysayers in the Democratic party, all of whom gleefully predicted a voter turnout even lower than those we have here in the good old democratic US of A).
