Washington & Tel Aviv (as usual) way off on Tehran!

'b' at MonnOfAlabama encapsulates it in two quotes:

"I take some consolation in that fact that I was not as wrong as the Washington Post editors:
"... Mr. Rouhani, who has emerged as the default candidate of Iran’s reformists, will not be allowed to win..."
Or as wrong as the Israeli-Iranian expert Meir Javedanfar
"... [I]t is safe to say that moderate candidate Hassan Rowhani has no chance of success. There is little doubt that Mr Rowhani and the Stanford educated reformist Mohammad Reza Aref are far more popular than the conservative candidates. However, the supreme leader would not allow votes in their favour to be counted..."
