Bush had a bit to say about bin Laden yesterday, "His vision of the world is where people don't participate in democracy." He was speaking of bin Laden's call for a boycott of the Iraqi elections, but look at where people participated in democracy by examining voter turnout among the voting age population of 163 nations throughout the 90's ... scroll down, down, down, you will find the United States ranked 140th out of the 163. We're in the 14th percentile.
