Dear Mr. Lehrer:
There was a question presented in the presidential debate on 09/26./08 , between the Dems and Repubs, about Foreign Policy with respect to Iran and what conditions if any to meet. There seemed to be contempt from McCain, and stuttering from Obama.
Please consider the letter sent to "President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad" ( a year ago, on 09/25/07 via firstname.lastname@example.org and other indirect destinations ') .
Dear President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:
I commend you for wanting to talk. This is the first step in building bridges regardless of the reception. It is not important to me that you question the holocaust, or the rights of Israel at the moment. If I have a say, I would look for Israel to be the biggest banking community in the Middle East, where all nations that surround it, can obtain financing and assistance for building agricultural economies. Please consider, that one nation does not have to be the friend of another in order to have it as its ally.
I think Israel's purpose in fate is to be a financial economy in order to serve your area of the world. In your position you can help make this realized. Further, it would be a great place to obtain financing for a second refinery. It also speaks in great measure of your actions as a world leader in peace.
I sent something before,( Iran Policy ) that I hope you will have a chance to look at. Perhaps on the plane home or before hand to share with your UN counterparts.
Peace can be achieved in finding economic solutions where it is currently easier to find excuses to hate others. Waging Peace through strategic economic solutions is detailed in the Foreign Policy section of a book I wrote. Some reviews are included below.
Keep Reaching out, as it calls for others to as well no matter how proud we tell others that we are.

About conditions: The above letter sent to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who in my opinion is quite shrewed, should convey ' That if you can not build a bridge with Israel ,( given even a financial incentive to do so ) which is the USA's most favored nation in the Mid East, then how could you ( Mahmoud) build a bridge with the USA ?
Another condition of course is to permit the USA and the UN be of significant help in building the Iranian Nuclear Facility that they claim is needed. I am sure that we can all be helpful with this ! At this point , I think that we can all discuss mutual interests in Iraq openly.
The above is based on my 5th Principle - Foreign Policy : to demonstrate a standard in respecting other nations that we expect from them.
