Paul Begala, writing on CNN's live blog, is right - if Bush supports democracy from Syria to Iran, why not from southern Maryland to Northern Virginia?
The president is recognizing the Iraqi and Afghan women in the First Lady's box -- women who cast their first free votes. I wonder if that means the president finally supports voting rights for the women and men who live in Washington D.C., which still has no voting rights in either the House or the Senate. His spokesman this week indicated Mr. Bush does not.
