The “We” Factor

Posted in Elections, Iran, USA by homeyra on February 9, 2009

Belated post about the American election. I followed as much as I was able to do so. It reminded me of our Khatami era. I just found Pedestrian’s great post. Don’t miss it.

    Hi Homeira and welcome back,
    Yes, it’s a nice comparison, but there is a big difference, Khatami came with a very beautiful beliefe, “Reform”, without any road map. But Obama, as much as I know, has come with a great and detailed one.
    Although, this doesn’t mean that I don’t believe in Khatami, rather say I like him very much and think he can be a good choice now. With a good experience of those 8 years.

    Obama isn’t living up to anything he promised and is clearly at sea about what to do.

    And, no matter what happens, I think Ahmadinejad has been the world leader with the most heart and up there with the leftists in South America in terms of courage… even though he doesn’t get to be a leader in the same sense they do. I think he’s done a great job with the worse than nothing he’s had to go on.

    Welcome back!
    Due to some unknown reason I could not add your link to my Google reader.
    But I always like your blog posts.
    Keep on!

    Hi Boogi Thanks. It seems to me that both candidates represent hope, and both have to struggle with well established interest. Obviously all that happen in a more organized way in one case.
    Thanks neghneghoo:) and you know the same is true with your blog. I can’t have it on google reader!
    That Moyers interview you posted 99 shows well the internal “defense” mechanism. Anyway I know that I don’t have a political instinct to have a sound assessment of tactics.
