William Safire has a few good and short thoughts on President Bushs democracy speech. He thinks we ought to read it in its entirety; he thinks it worthy. It is a great speech, one that will define his presidency and our foreign policy. He muses that no one, including the New York Times had the sense to reprint it in full. Here is the full speech, again. Safire likes this line by Bush: "And as we meet the terror and violence of the world, we can be certain the author of freedom is not indifferent to the fate of freedom."
