Thanks for not using your "power" to cancel the elections because of the war you started in Iraq.
"One freedom that defines our way of life is the freedom to choose our leaders at the ballot box. We saw that freedom earlier this week, when millions of Americans went to the polls to cast their votes for a new Congress. Whatever your opinion of the outcome, all Americans can take pride in the example our democracy sets for the world by holding elections even in a time of war."- President Bush on November 11, 2006hat tip Peter Daou
