Larijani: Iran prefers Obama - Israel News, Ynetnews: "Iranian parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said Wednesday that Iran would prefer Democrat Barack Obama in the White House next year. Larijani also dismissed any idea that the US would attack Iran.Who knew Iran had conservatives, too? We feel better just knowing there are prominent figures in the Iranian government who support small government, the market economy, low taxes and individual liberty. If even Iranian conservatives can come out in support of Barack Obama, we can all rest easier at the prospect of an Obama Dynasty.
'We are leaning more in favor of Barack Obama because he is more flexible and rational, even though we know American policy will not change that much,' Larijani said at a press conference during a visit to Bahrain.
How to deal with Iran and the crisis over its nuclear drive has been one of the foreign policy issues in the Nov. 4 race for the White House between Obama and Republican John McCain.
Larijani, a leading figure in the conservative camp in Iran, also said the United States was too busy dealing with the global financial crisis to consider waging an attack on Iran." [emphasis added]
Larijani also revealed that he has personally donated the maximum amount to Obama's campaign, 37 times so far.
