    • Abstract:
      This article profiles Iyad Allawi. In a country where voters don't know the names, much less the faces, of the candidates, the campaign poster for List 285 shows just a pair of hard, piercing eyes. Allawi is betting that Iraqis voting blind would get the message in his gaze: this is one tough guy. Allawi's tenure has been a season of bitter discontent. Every election is in some sense a referendum on the incumbent. In this case, the man in the hot seat for the past seven months has presided over a steady worsening of just about everything in Iraq. Many Iraqis buy his slogan, "A powerful government leads to a safe state." Despite the failings of his Cabinet to deliver basic services, Allawi could survive on image alone. But it's just as likely that Allawi will lose. And if he does, his fall will be a poignant coda to a year in which mainstream Iraqi opinion turned against the U.S. and those viewed as its clients. So when Iraqis go to their polling places next week, will they vote their admiration for Allawi's tough image or their dismay with his weak performance? Will they want his strong American backing or reject him as a U.S. puppet? "He's smart, he's a great infighter, he has money, and he's got the U.S.," says an important secular leader. "It probably won't be enough." INSET: IRAQ'S FUTURE LEADERS?.
