I agree that "getting the rules right" is the important thing at this time. However, I see a better chance of this happening with U.S. moral pressure: an open appeal to the Iraqi populace that they have to hold their politicians accountable to make democracy work, and the closed list won't do this, so they had better organize themselves to challenge their current leaders. And if that rubs some of the current Iraqi leadership the wrong way, well, that's fine, because they aren't America's puppets.
