In this Sunday, March 10, 2013 photo, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, left, holds hands with chief of staff Esfandiari Rahim Mashaei, during a press conference in Tehran, Iran. In the waning months of Ahmadinejad's presidency weakened by years of internal battles with the ruling clerics there appears no bigger priority than attempting one last surprise. It's built around rehabilitating the image of Rahim Mashaei and somehow getting him a place among the candidates for the June 14 vote.
