Today is a huge day.....

Today, we witnessed a huge moment in history. The referendum on the Iraqi constitution is, with out a doubt, one of the the most significant events that we have witnessed since the Berlin Wall came down. And rest assured that even if Hariet Meyers is a stiff, this is the thing that GWB will be remembered by.

I've never entertained delusions of G-Dub being some sort of Lincoln, who enacted domestic change so revolutionary. But the extended vision of the world that this administration has displayed is nothing short of revolutionary.

The Iraqi people just pulled of the first constitutional referendum in Arab history. They are shaping their future like so many of their fathers could not, their voices heard for the first time.

I went for a run to Ensign Peak today. As I arrived at the monument, there was an Iraqi flag planted on the Eastern side. I could not help but feel the significance of today.
