Democracy that swept across a continent.

The Washington Post reports President Bush's statement about the death of Pope John Paul II:
President Bush today hailed Pope John Paul II as "a hero for the ages" and said ... "[T]he world has lost a champion of human freedom ... [who] launched a democratic revolution that swept Eastern Europe and changed the course of history."

Is it too obvious that Bush must hope that he will be remembered in similar terms?
