Mehdi Khaliji, a senior fellow at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy, studied Shia theology in the Qom seminary of Iran.

Iran’s ruling regime pays close attention to American politics in its own calculations about how to negotiate with Washington — and how to game the new diplomatic effort. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and his inner circle, for example, believe that President Barack Obama needs to talk to Iran, but they also sense that the U.S. president will be unable to make any concessions because it might endanger his reelection bid.

So Tehran has concluded that Obama needs to prolong the talks and achieve minor goals to demonstrate that talks are making progress.
