In case it wasn't clear, I was talking about Iran, not California.
I can't find an analogous situation in the West.
The Democratic Party of Japan (which mixes economic liberalism with
social and cultural liberalism) is a little bit like
Mousavi/Rafsanjani, though in Japan working people have the JCP, so
they don't need to make a choice between the DP and the LDP.
