    Mehdi Karroubi may be the dark horse.

    If the behavior of the mullahs is any indication -- pressures against Tehran University students, government shut-down of Shirin Ebadi's (the Nobel laureate human rights lawyer) Center for Defenders of Human Rights and raid on its offices, and the anticipated hardliner filtering of candidates by the Guardian Council is any indication -- they (the mullahs) will allow the next president of Iran to be whomever they want.

    And no one else.
