Afghan doctor moves to top in presidential contest

Ally of U.S. Emerges as Front-Runner in Afghan Vote

In preliminary results released Saturday, Abdullah Abdullah, a longtime opponent of President Hamid Karzai’s and an ardent supporter of the United States, won 45 percent of the votes in the presidential election, but not enough to avoid a runoff.
Abdullah is an intelligent man who first came to my attention as a spokesman for the Northern Alliance right after the 9-11 attacks.  He very well probably won the last election and would have if not for vote fraud and ballot stuffing to give the race to Karzai.  For the Afghan's sake I hope Abdullah wins this time.
