In less than two months, the world will see its most important election of the year — and it will take place in Iran. I have to admit that even typing those words is sort of strange. I mean, we’re talking about a strict theocracy here — a revolutionary regime that still dreams of ideological conquest. So why would its presidential contest even matter at all? How about an overshadowed middle class, a shape shifting energy industry, and a ratcheting-up of military might at a crucial moment for global security? Sounds a little like last year’s most important election, now doesn’t it?
