Iran Election

Some people keep insisting that an American-style democracy can be developed anywhere in the world, including the Mideast. Up until this weekend, they were encouraged
by the fact that Iran was having a presidential election. Now that the election is over, the party in power has declared that they have won. The opposition is outraged, and says that the declared "winner" cheated and stole the election. Sounds pretty much like the way our elections work after all.
