Ba'athists protest against Iraqi Constitution, which bans Ba'athists

What a surprise:
Yesterday, Sunni Arab leaders staged demonstrations in Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit against the draft constitution. According to the Associated Press "about 2,000 people, mostly Sunnis, marched Monday against the constitution." The wire service reported that some of the demonstrators "carried pictures of Saddam and repeated chants heard in countless stage-managed protests during his regime: 'We sacrifice our souls and blood for you, Saddam.'" Others carried pictures of a Shiite cleric, Muqtada al-Sadr, who also opposes the constitution's provisions that would grant regions significant provincial autonomy.
