Orange and Purple

Tumbling graffiti-laced walls in Berlin, orange scarves and sweaters in the Ukraine, ink-stained fingers in Baghdad-- new symbols of freedom throughout the world.

On Meet The Press, John Kerry tried to put a cautionary damper on the moment, but as the day wore on, the excitement -- captured here by Geraldo Rivera on Fox News -- bubbled over. Just watching those folks dancing in the streets, defiantly raising their purple fingers to the cameras made me smile all afternoon.

Take a moment and watch this video. This is what we needed to see after months of relentless, disturbing pictures being splashed on our front pages. Freedom, cynically pooh-poohed by the Left, is the fuel driving these Iraqis.

Look at their eyes. Look at their smiles.
