Obama Effect in Iran?

Keep watching Juan Cole as the results arrive from today's vote in Iran. In the meantime...
Howard LaFranchi at CSM asks what the 'Obama Effect' will be on the Iranian revolution. Although it was not decisive, scientific polling in Lebanon suggests that Obama did have an effect in the defeat of the Hezbollah coalition, "March 8", in Lebanon, even if it was a slight one.
On the other hand... Fred Kaplan.
