The Job Awaiting Iran's President

Robert Siegel talks with Ken Pollack of the Brookings Institution about the outlook for U.S.-Iranian relations after last week's presidential election in Iran. Pollack says the winner, the conservative Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, is unlikely to pull back from Iran's plans to develop nuclear technology. And Pollack suggests his economic plans may hurt Iran's struggling economy. Pollack is also the author of The Persian Puzzle.
