Kevin Sullivan at RealClearPolitics thinks some of us are throwing around the word “revolution” a little too carelessly. He may be right. It’s hard to say in real time from thousands of miles away, and it probably isn’t much easier to say from inside Iran.
Some of the demonstrators are in a revolutionary mood. Others just want their votes counted, and the man they’re rallying behind is himself part of the regime establishment. A dizzying array of possibilities exist at this point, and none of us have a clue what the country will look like when it settles down.
