Juan Cole on Iraqi PM wheeling and dealing

Juan Cole has a very interesting take on the wheeling and dealing that allowed Ahmad Chalabi to emerge as one of the top two candidates for Iraqi prime minister (which I'm sure boggled many minds, including my own) as well as possible strategy behind Allawi throwing his hat into the ring. Although this was obviously written before it became clear that Ibrahim Jaafari had beaten out Chalabi for the United Iraqi Alliance endorsement, it is still interesting and gives one a good insight into the power structures that are being formed in the Iraqi interim government.
