Iran, A Reality Check for Obama

A fabulous opinion piece from Wesley Pruden at the Washington Times. Here's a tease...
If Iranian voters had thrown Mahmoud Ahmadinejad into the street, the American president would have assumed that he was the One who did it, and the American press would have led the hosannas for the messiah from the south side of Chicago. Just a few more speeches, a few more respectful bows toward Mecca, and all the rough places would be made smooth and plain. But now even Mr. Obama must wake up and smell the tear gas.

All the wishy washy rhetoric aside, the president has an opportunity here. But does he have the political savvy, or will, to take advantage?
