Professor Althouse has a good article showing that many Iraq war supporters did in fact make pre-war predictions that democracy in Iraq would help spread democracy in the Middle East.

Personally, I never understood why Bush framed the Iraq war in terms of possible WMD. I always thought removing Saddam and setting up a democracy in Iraq was a good in and of itself. And it was in the U.S. national interest as Saddam was clearly a destabalizing force on the Middle East. I certainly didn't think it would have as strong democratic effects as it has, but clearly something like this was another possible benefit.
