    Unlike the dynastic tyrants like Assad, Bush is a legitimate leader of the democratic nation. In 13 months, he will no longer be in that position, however there is no indication that his successor will have a significantly different attitude towards tyrants like Assad, the bloody theocracy in Iran, or Islamic Terrorists like Hamas. When he took office, Sadaam Hussein ruled as a tyrant and Bin Laden was openly running terrorist camps under the protection of the bizarre Taliban regime. Sadaam his now dead, as are his sons, Bin Laden is hiding in a cave somewhere, and the Taliban are trying to survive in the wilds of Afghanistan. No one president, even with the power of the US military, can wipe out all the evil tyrants in a single administration, but that "incompetent idiot" Bush made a pretty good start. Let's see if his successor can do anywhere near as well.
