WASHINGTON -- Since that fateful March day in 2003 when America invaded Iraq, the biggest question for many of us has been, "Where are the American people?"

President Bush told us to "go shopping" and not worry -- and that's apparently what a lot of us did (serving mostly to help the Chinese). The mystery has been why so few citizens seem to care about the war, its reasoning and its morality.

Hopefully, my original worry after 9/11 -- that Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney and their neocon group were not just an unlikely cabal, but that they actually represented the American people -- is not holding up. Instead, it appears that the American people have gone their own way, keeping to the central cores of their beliefs in multilateralism, in concern for the decent opinions of mankind, and in opposition to any more arrogant and foolish impositions of American power.

If that turns out to be true in this election, there still IS hope. The next tasks will be to get the White House to take advice on Iraq and to make the point to Congress that they have to spend a few days a week actually working. Now, THOSE are problems.
