Barack Obama: the view from Iran

Obama was a good choice for Americans,” said Ali Zadek, 29, a company director. “If they’d wanted confrontation with the rest of the world they would have chosen McCain. He added, half-joking: “I would like Americans to have elected someone like Ahmadinejad to be their president just so they would know how bad things are here.”

Construction worker Abbas Barhadi, 50, said: “I like Obama. If he can have good relations with Iran it will be good for both nations.”

Seyyid Hossein, 30, a teacher, said: “Obama’s victory could improve things because he has his head on his shoulders. But I believe the regime doesn’t want better relations with the US. It wants to have a big enemy to frighten people and maintain its rule.”
