USA future policy on Iran

It's confusing to predict how is the new American Policy going to be under Bush's 2nd term. From one side we hear voices of moderation from Rice about the multilateral foreign policy with emphasis on tuning with Europeans. On the other side there are all these reports about the ongoing Pentagon's effort in plans to do premptive attacks againts Iranian facilities. One thing is clear that America can not afford any military option for Iran at least for another year. Iraq is seriously a mess these days and in spite of all the propaganda about the electio, there is going to be a selection of parliment and generally the country is far from a unity government. And that's what exactly Iranian regime will benefit from. But in a year when the election is over in Iran (with most probably a centerist-right new Iranian president), Iran has to start talking to US, otherwise the military wing of neo-conservatives in Pentagon are really countng down to get their hands dirty in Iran.
