Obama's Iran dilemma
The result of the Iranian election is the worst possible outcome for President Obama.
He could have coped quite cheerfully with an Ahmadinejad loss of course but also with a clean-cut win where he could have expressed respect for the government and moved on.
But now it is difficult for him to deal substantively with a regime that seems so illegitimate - result: stasis.
And the result of that could be growing pressure for any outreach to Iran to come to an end.
