Amirahmadi, a professor at Rutgers University, is running for president of Iran. The liberal professor is embarking on a Quixotic quest and must still win approval from the supreme leader's Iranian supreme council, which many say won't happen. But Amirahamadi is resolute, running a grassroots campaign and tapping into Iranian expats who want to see the country open up to the west. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)
