Looking over the elements of this photo of a door kicked in, I believe, at Tehran University earlier in the week, my question, is: how much did the spirit and lyrics of Obama’s long political campaign, coupled with his eventual victory (and then, his speech in Cairo, perhaps) “sink into the mortar” of the Iranian opposition?

Although the comparison is complicated for a hundred reasons, it’s hard for me to escape the parallels in intelligence and temperament between the Obama and the Tehran wave.

…And then, here’s my other thought on the slogan (click through).
