it was nice of Reuters to include the phrase

over and over, for each photo, to remind us how 'catastrophic' they (hoped) it would be...

An Iraqi woman sheds tears of happiness, for having been able to vote.

Can't wait to see how the left honors this woman's devotion
to the new Iraq, later today.

Frankly, it touches your heart to know we provide this for her and
other Iraqis.

Thanks to President Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and our troops!

Of course, they didn't mention there were 30,000 polling places in Iraq and they must have been showing the one with light traffic. Hah!

Obviously from the long walks, long lines and long waits, Jessie Jackson will intervene as there is ample proof there was an attempt to disenfranchise some voters? LOL
