It gets worse.  Presidential challenger Abdullah Abdullah threatens to  pull out of next week’s runoff.  One of the contentious issues is the head of the Karzai-appointed Independent Election Commission, Azizullah Lodin who made some fairly partisan comments last week essentially assuring a Karzai victory.  I am not sure I understand the American desire for a “power-sharing” arrangement to solve the standoff.  For that to work, it requires a level of trust that does not exist on either side here.  Otherwise you have the problem that caused the breakdown of a similar process in Zimbabwe.
