Doesn't Iran's electoral politics sounds similar to the US?

If you read this article about Iran's upcoming election, I'm amazed by how similar the situation is there to the United States circa 2007. There is a heavy urban/rural divide, with hardliners on the right heavily influenced by tradition and religion. Regardless of who wins, let's hope that the youth call for more moderate policy is heard, and that no one decides to take a close victory as a "mandate".

That's right. Ahmadinejad is Iran's W.
