Sunny Side-Up

When I logged onto CNN.com this morning I immediately cracked a smile.


Because of this.

Kudos to CNN for putting a positive story about Iraq on its front-page.

If democracy can win followers in the Sunni heartland only five miles from Fallujah, in an area that was thought to be implacably hostile to democratic governance, then that bodes exceptionally well for the upcoming elections, which could potentially mark a turning-point in the transformation of Iraq and the Middle East.

Let's keep our fingers crossed.
