Now this is interesting
I don't really know what to make of this piece from Political Wire: "'The head of Iran's security council said Tuesday that the re-election of President Bush was in Tehran's best interests, despite the administration's axis of evil label, accusations that Iran harbors al-Qaida terrorists and threats of sanctions over the country's nuclear ambitions,' the AP reports.

'Historically, Democrats have harmed Iran more than Republicans, said Hasan Rowhani, head of the Supreme National Security Council, Iran's top security decision-making body.' "

What immediately comes to mind is Carter's total inability to resolve the Iran Hostage Crisis, and Reagan's immediate resolution of the same by simply winning the election. I always chalked that up to fear of Reagan's hawkish side, rather than an Iranian soft spot for Republicans. Remember, we're the ones that want to invade and topple Tehran's current government, if only we thought that were feasible.

I read the same piece, it seems to me that we have our own axis of evil in this country, the Bush Administration.
