Wasn't it great to see all those Iraqi men voting this weekend? All those lines and lines of men waiting to cast their male votes! I tuned in quite a bit during the day, and seeing all those men willing to stand for hours to exercise their rights was really heartening. It was truly a victory for Iraqi men yesterday, for sure.
By order from the U.S.-backed interim council, one-third of the candidates on the ballot had to be women. If only they'd decreed that kind of participation from the voters. Sadly, it would have been an improvement.
