Ahmadinejad *Hearts* Obama

Is there some sort of saying about the sort of fans a person generates denoting the type of person they are...akin to "birds of a feather"? No? Well, there should be...

"...Barack Obama's offer of a hand of friendship to Iran after 30 years of hostility may have met with a sceptical public response from Tehran. But now a rapprochement of sorts may be under way amid evidence that the US president's can-do electioneering tactics have struck a chord with his Iranian counterpart, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Obama's signature campaign slogan, Yes We Can, has been replicated by the Iranian president in a promotional video issued for Iran's presidential poll on 12 June, when Ahmadinejad is seeking re-election.

The video features a cover picture of Ahmadinejad wearing his trademark white jacket and pointing to the Farsi phrase Ma Mitavanim (We Can) on a blackboard." (source)

I wasn't sure if Ahmadinejad was up for reelection, or if it was like "Yes we can deny the Holocaust in spite of hundreds of thousands of pictures and eye witnesses" or "Yes we can deny Iran has any gay people" or "Yes we can build nuclear weapons and look you right in the face and say we aren't."
