6-28-2014   Newshound Guru Enorrste   If...correct that there is a compromise candidate "in the works" Mahdi may well be that person.  The question is whether Maliki has "signed off" on Mahdi or not.  One thing is clear:  he is certainly well qualified for the job. Unfortunately, I still think Maliki is going to do whatever he can to retain his position.  Time will tell.  [post 2 of 2]
