Thought of the Day

I was in Davos last week and and have been writing about the meeting of the World Economic Forum in my daily column at Al Hayat. A few notes:
- Professor Klaus Schwab desrves the Nobel Peace Prize. He is really working to improve the state of all peoples of the world and has been doing this for over 30 years.
- U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff did not disappoint me. He was as negative as one would expect from a senior Bush official.
- Senator John Kerry was excellent. He knew the difference between Sunnis and Shiites and revealed a deep grasp of the most thorny issues in the Middle East. It was not just that he read from prepared statements, even Bush can do that, but he was good when it came to questions and answers.
- Looking at and hearing Kerry and remembering how he lost the election to George W. Bush left me thinking that any opponent of democracy would only need to cite the result of that election to win the arugment.

Mr. Bush has both fans and detractors. Mr. Kerry does not have a base of support among the military.

I wanted George Bush to win in 2000 and celebrated his appointment by the Supreme Court. I lived to regret his "victory." I am not going to support any candidate in 2008 because I understand now that people should be careful about what they wish for; they may get it.
