News analyst Daniel Schorr looks at what the election of Mohamed Khatami (HAHT-ah-mee) could mean for U-S relations with Iran. He notes that the U-S has been looking for moderates in the government there ever since the Reagan administration. The Clinton Administration has said it is ready to talk after Iran promises not to export terrorism. But Schorr says the United States — which continues to maintain sanctions against Tehran — is likely to come under pressure to do more to promote change in Iran.
