So, how much good news coming out of the Middle East will be necessary for a strongly anti-war Democrat [like, say, Howard Dean] to admit that the Iraq war, deposing Saddam, and starting a domino effect was a good thing?

I don't think Syria leaving Lebanon would do it. I don't think coming to some sort of conclusion on the Palestinian vs Israel question would do it. Might reforms in Saudi Arabia and Egypt do it? Or maybe Iran.

Hat tip: Instapundit.

Oh yeah, and isn't it interesting that the Washington Times article thinks the protest is entirely inspired by the Orange Revolution, while Rajan Rishyakaran thinks Iraq's elections had something to do with it.
