Taking It to the Streets: Election Rallies in Iran

Hosted by  • 

In Iran, recent weeks have seen a surprisingly hard fought election campaign. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad faces a strong challenge from reformist Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who's broken with convention by campaigning with his outspoken wife at his side. Will urban women and youth tip the scales towards Mousavi, or will hardliners and the rural poor help re-elect Ahmadinejad? How will the outcome affect politics in the region and relationships with the West? Also, President Obama calls Green Bay a model for healthcare reform. On Reporter's Notebook, were airspeed indicators part of the problem that led to the crash of Air France Flight 447 over the Atlantic more than a week ago? Sara Terry guest hosts.
