Let them Vote!

Iraqi Shi'ite women line up to participate in their country's national elections, outside a polling station in the holy city of Najaf, January 30, 2005. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (news - web sites) hailed Iraq (news - web sites)'s landmark elections as 'the emergence of an Iraqi voice for freedom' but acknowledged there would be many difficult days ahead. Rice, who just took office last week as the top U.S. diplomat, told ABC's 'This Week' that Iraqis defied expectations to turn out in large numbers and she expressed confidence that minority Sunnis, a key to Iraq's future stability, would be included in the post-election political process.
