Rouhani's Funeral Quandary

If Iran's "moderate" prez decides to attend the Mandela funeral there's a good chance he could come face to face with the dude an Iranian newspaper calls "the head of the Great Satan government." Sure, that would be capital "A" Awkward for Rouhani (and even worse, according to the paper, a "trap"), but Obama would no doubt be delighted to see him. Heck, he'd likely go out of his way to show the faux-moderate that bridge-building, outreach and mealy-mouthed obsequiousness (at least on Great Satan's part) are the only way to go.

Two men who have never been in the same room at the same time. Is that about to change?
