Hosted by

Efforts to stop the Iran nuclear deal appear to have failed in the Senate, and leaders of Congress have postponed action on the "Resolution of Disapproval." But the opposition won't go away, and today's debate is a measure of how difficult future diplomacy will be for President Obama and his successor. While Hillary Clinton was supporting the deal this morning, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz were still rallying opposition. Collin Powell, Dick Cheney and Sarah Palin are being heard from on different sides of the issue. We look at the rhetoric and the reality.
