Sometimes.

Certainly people develop over times, this is a truism.

But in the case of Ahmadinejad I see not so much of change, but a steady  
career within the framework of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Certanly he  
has his opponents and adversaries, but that should not be something  
unusual for a polician.
