Iran Election

Jill talks to NPR's Jennifer Ludden about the results of Friday's elections in Iran. Preliminary results show that reformers have made significant strides, which Ludden says, may lead to dramatic changes in the relationship between Iran's clerics and politicians. Reform candidates were buoyed by support from women and young Iranians, who are demanding more freedom from clerical control.
