'Not necessarily democracy'

James Baker, on "The Charlie Rose Show" the other day:

"If we are able to promote representative, representative government, not necessarily democracy, in a number of nations in the Middle East and bring more freedom to the people of that part of the world, it will have been a success."

Couldn't find a transcript the next day, but he's quoted in this NY Sun story headlined "Baker's Panel Rules Out Iraq Victory." W will rue the day he created the Iraq Study Group.
