Sudan leader's hat tip to Bush

When we visited Ireland in 2007 we found that Bill Clinton was beloved by the Irish for brokering the peace. George W. Bush right now is much loved in South Sudan for the same reason. (Although I don't think Obama mentioned it Saturday, the day of the big Reveal.) And obviously, Politico, a left source, is pretty snarky about it too in this article. But it will be up to the people of South Sudan to make this work. Right now they really don't have much understanding about what a "country" is, at least not in the sense the Irish did. But they do want to be able to harvest their crops, marry, have families and visit relatives without being slaughtered by Arab Muslims.
