Gibbs revises statement

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, said yesterday that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was "Iran's elected leader." From a Reuters interview aboard Air Force One:

"Let me correct a little bit of what I said yesterday. I denoted that Mr. Ahmadinejad was the elected leader of Iran. I would say that's not for me to pass judgment on," Gibbs told reporters aboard Air Force One.

"He's been inaugurated. That's a fact. Whether any election was fair, obviously the Iranian people still have questions about that, and we'll let them decide about that."

The Obama administration has been walking a very thin line, wanting to support the Iranian opposition, while at the same time dealing with the reality that Ahmadinejad is likely to be the face they must look at in any diplomatic overtures, at least in the short term.

Hopefully, this eases, at least a little bit, the minds of all who want to see real change in Iran.
