WASHINGTON — President Bush on Monday will remind the world that while the path toward Iraqi democracy has been somewhat rocky, so was the path to American democracy over 200 years ago.

In an 11:20 a.m. ET speech to the World Affairs Council in Philadelphia, birthplace of the U.S. Constitution, the president will argue that, like the Americans who gathered in Philadelphia for the constitutional convention in 1787, Iraqis are showing their resolve to govern themselves.

Bush will discuss how Iraqis have completed each of their political hurdles on schedule and will continue to do so with Thursday's election of a 275-member national assembly. The president is fighting to rebuild slumping support for the war.

Pennsylvania also is the home state of a leading Iraq war critic, Democratic Rep. John Murtha, who planned to speak after Bush and repeat his call to bring the troops home from a fight he says has become too violent and out of control.
