EDITORIAL HOPEFUL SIGN.
Although there was some violence, hope won the day with millions of Iraqis defying terrorist threats and taking to the polls. ``I am doing this because I love my country and I love the sons of my nation,'' one voter said proudly Sunday.
The election marks only the beginning of what is hoped to be the path to self-determination and Western-style democracy in the Middle East. As such, the winners in the vote were not just the popular candidates but everyone.
With their ink-stained fingers, Iraqis overwhelmingly endorsed stability and freedom, soundly rejecting the insurgents' violence and regressiveness.
