The discussion on January 10th Larry King Live included these excerpts from presidential candidate John Edwards:
Edwards: The Iraqis are Better Than Us
"If you think about everyday life, people are more likely to take responsibility when no one else is helping them or propping them up."
Of course... "It's time for the Iraqis to do this."
Apparently Americans are not ready for democracy and it can't be forced upon them, but the Iraqis... maybe.
