« Did Ted Turner Buy Fox News? | Main | Mosul Elections Build A Crowd »
Geraldo Rivera has been reporting from an undisclosed town that has a mixed Shi'a-Sunni population, and now he's saying that the polling station is "packed" with men and women. He's talking about how the scene -- which I'm watching as he speaks on video -- inspires him, taking Jesse Jackson's civil-rights reference and putting in proper context. Geraldo is interviewing an Iraqi voter, who told him:
"I am very happy, because I am not afraid of terrorists. ... I'm not afraid, because election is what I am need."
Geraldo's emotions have overcome him, and he's not alone.
UPDATE: Better video now (12:24 AM CT), and you can see the crowd of smiling Iraqi voters, not minding the cameras one bit. If they're afraid, you sure as hell can't see it in their delighted faces. One man even gave the cameras two thumbs up.Sphere It View blog reactions
