PolicyMic pundit Lionel Beehner explains what to expect from the election:
"One thing for certain: Do not expect much change in Iran's orientation on foreign policy, whether with respects to Syria or its nuclear negotiations. The president in Iran holds little power on this front. Nor have any of the candidates suggested major departures from the status quo. Iranians, like Americans last year, are mostly voting for domestic pocketbook issues. The only question (and suspense) is how conservative the eventual winner will turn out to be, and how many Iranians will actually turn out to vote."
