The Iranian election campaign is really quite interesting. The reformer, Moussavi, has been leading an aggressive campaign, and his wife has played a major role. It's created an interesting dynamic, and there's a good chance that at Iran, like the United States, will boot conservative Ahmadinejad. I wonder if Obama's speech, though largely blocked in Iran, was timed to influence the election.

If they do elect a new Iranian President who goes against our interests, maybe we'll topple their leader like we did a few decades ago, which is what made previously pro-American Iran turn against us in the first place.
TEHRAN, Iran - Supporters of Iran's main pro-reform presidential candidate formed a human chain that stretched nearly the entire length of Tehran on Monday in their biggest display of political might — sending a powerful challenge to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's backers as both sides poured into the streets in the final days of the race.
The showdown atmosphere reflects the increasingly bitter tone between Ahmadinejad and his main rival, Mir Hossein Mousavi, in the campaign blitz before Friday's vote. Both have traded recriminations and engaged in mudslinging as intense as any bare-knuckle American campaign and — in the process — have turned the election into a display of Iran's deep political divides.
MOST important part of the article:
Ahmadinejad's supporters applaud his firebrand style that include questions over the Holocaust and his uncompromising defense of Iran's nuclear program. Mousavi's backers — including many young voters — believe Iran's international standing is being undermined and a more flexible approach is needed with critical issues at stake such as possible talks with Washington.
