Iraq's Tipping Point
Robert Dreyfus writes that although we will not know the Iraqi government’s final tally for a few weeks, that won’t stop President Bush from declaring the elections a victory for democracy.

Democracy can only be the outgrowth of an earnest national consensus — a consensus that Bush, for some unknown reason, has done everything possible to avoid building.
