Democracy is the best revenge

Asif Ali Zardari's tale continues, a man thought to have brought down the daughter of east twice, was elected the President of Pakistan by a huge majority of electorate. According to media people turned out in large numbers on the streets to celebrate. Yes Pakistanis are fortunate to have celebrated twice within 20 days. The first time it was Musharraf's departure and now Zardari's arrival. Democracy is sure a sweet revenge and at times sends you to the presidential palace.

The following statement should be kept mind while looking at the future of democracy in Pakistan.

But most Swazis see things entirely otherwise. As a local saying goes, "A king is a mouth that does not lie." The government is bad, people tend to conclude, but the king is good.
