Another victory in Iraq

From Fox News:
BAGHDAD, Iraq — Up to 15 million Iraqis — including large numbers
of Sunnis, who boycotted the January elections — voted in historic
elections Thursday amid only scattered violence.
stayed open one
hour later, until 6 p.m. local time (10 a.m. EST),
of such high turnout.
Long lines were reported in some
precincts, said
commission official Munthur
Abdelamir, some of which
wrapped around
neighborhood blocks. The commission said
results will be
announced within
two weeks.

Well, this is yet another underdog victory for Iraqis, the third successful election - in one year -
in a country that never had Democracy. The voter turnout has been, for the most part, higher than turnout was here for the '04 elections. And we don't have to worry about terrorists blowing us away at the polls!
I echo what Raving Conservative said:
Hey dems - spin this!
