  •  rhetoric is, unfortunately--one of the few windows (0+ / 0-)

    we have into political minds--so Ahmadinejad is actually a fairly dangerous actor in world affairs even if the Ayatollahs wield the actual power.  But in any case--how much power they DO wield is a matter of debate as well--the rift between the cleric and the mullahs is a major issue as well--so who the key players might turn out to be in a few years can certainly be in some flux.

    I see Khameini as a strange character but a rational actor--Ahmadinejad is more of a mouth--and a loud one.  But that mouth is doing a fair amount to shape politics in the region as well.
