BBC NEWS | Middle East | Iran's Khatami to run for office
When he was last President of Iran he was fairly useless.
Should he once again be elected President, he will undoubtedly do as little to forward Iran as he did then.
In reality Iran is run by the Theology, no elected person in any elective office will ever be permitted to actually carry out the promises thet give the electorate.
Rather like having a straw man in that office.
