    the news side (Bill Keller) is separate from the editorial side (Andrew Rosenthal).  It's not necessarily surprising that they're not consistent.

      which I thought was strange.

      The story describes Ahmadinejad as a "shrewd and ruthless front man," and quotes "one well-connected Iranian" as saying, "This will change the face of the Islamic Republic forever. Ahmadinejad will claim an absolute mandate, meaning he has no need to compromise." I think it's a bit weird to read that as salivating over executive power!

      Your point is well taken regardless.
