If he (khatami) stands, the conservatives may unite reluctantly around Mr Ahmadinejad. Privileged with incumbency and a populism that still strikes a chord with poorer Iranians, he remains their best chance. But Mr Khatami’s enduring popularity rattles his foes. The results of an internal government poll in big and medium-sized cities suggest that he could win twice as many votes in these places as Mr Ahmadinejad.

Are you tired of this line? We know for a fact that there were major differences in every aspect of Iranian policy and Iranian lives during between Khatami and Ahmadinejad.

Yours was the kind of attitude that brought Ahamdinejad to power. Now you want to do it again?


Same Donkey with a different load

If they follow the "Supreme" idiot Mullah, then they are all the same Donkies,with different looking loads on their backs.

The funny part is they do have an election process but only a select group can run, not open to all qualified, just proven Mullah loving ones.

Even that brings them no decision making or executive power, just a title.

The real challenge is getting rid of the Turbans and Robes all together.
