Khatami 2009

It appears that Mohammed Khatami, a reformist and former President of Iran has thrown his name into the ring for Iran’s Presidential election on June 12.  I am hoping that he succeeds because a Khatami Presidency may be an opening for a more robust dialogue between Washington and Tehran, as pointed out by Juan Cole.

Iran’s current President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has so far not reciprocated our President’s apparent openness to dialogue.
