Andrew Sullivan’s quote of the day:
“I think [Iraq is] going well. It breaks my heart whenever anybody dies, but we liberated 25 million people who were living under a dictator. It puts us on the side of democracy in the Arab world. Twenty years from now, we’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who says it wasn’t worth the effort. This is not just another democracy. This is a democracy in an Arab world…” – former Democratic Senator, and New School University president, Bob Kerrey, December 29, 2003.
