Iran Elections

NPR's Jacki Lyden reports that though candidates in Iran's upcoming presidential election represent different points of view on Iran's future, the area of those differences is tightly prescribed by the fact all four candidates running in the election were first veted by Iran's ruling religious establishment. What that means is that there will be no real change in how the Islamic Republic of Iran is governed by its new president.
