Iraqi Politics

NPR's Jackie Northam in Baghdad reports on the emergence of new political parties in Iraq, each trying to fill the vacuum left by the ouster of Saddam Hussein's regime. Political party offices are sprouting up all over the capital, representing Islamist groups as well as leftists, monarchists and former high-ranking military officers.
