    True there might be some in the Obama administration possibly even including Obama himself who will fall for the idea of this guy bing classed as a "moderate" but at the end of the day it comes down to policy not titles of are you moderate or radical. Bibi will demand progress on the nuclear issue and if non is made then the threats of an attack will resurface. If needed Bibi will do this without even informing Obama the way Begin didn't inform Carter in advance when he attacked Saddams nuclear factuality probably because he knew Carter would try pressure him into calling off the attack, Once the attack has happened not much Carter could do about it other than support UN sanctions condemning Israel for the attack which he did. In the US Congress has just voted in favour of the US not trying to hold back Israel in any military action it chooses to take in the face of ex tinctinal threats and an Iranian nuke is one of them. Bibi will tone things down for now but if he sees no progress which is unlikely because in Iran a moderate doesn't mean revolutionary attitude in policy it means he is less outspoken like Ahmadinejad. and the real power in Iran lies in the hands of the ayatollahs and what they say goes. He wouldn't even have been a presidential candidate if the ayatollahs thought he was going to be a major reformer. he is a wolf in a she eps clothing so don't anybody get their hope for new Iranian policies yet. I very much doubt we will see an end to the nuclear program or end support for Hezbollah anytime soon.
