Thomas Friedman was the intellectual side kick of the former Neo Con's. He appealed to the upper middle class of the early part of the millennium, talking about "Democracy" as he saw it - meaning rampant privatization of the Iraqi economy - rather than harping on Weapons of Mass Destruction as Bush himself did.
