    Khamenei's "choice." I completely agree with you that its more complicated than that. However, I would stand by the assertion that if Khamenei and the SC wanted to stop him from running they would. I think they are hedging and are open to the possibility of Khatami winning in June. I don't think its a done deal in either direction--its not "fixed." They are watching closely and broadening possibilities in the opposite direction of what they did with Majlis elections in 03.

    I still do think he asked, through surrogates or others to make sure that he would not just be wasting his time.
