Shift in policy? Phone call between Obama, Rouhani

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama spoke by telephone with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, the first direct conversation between leaders of the United States and Iran since 1979.

Obama believes a comprehensive agreement is possible regarding Iran's nuclear ambitions, telling reporters at the White House that "the test will be meaningful, transparent and verifiable action" and if proven would ease international sanctions in place against Iran.

    Only Pres. Obama would negotiate with the Iranian President but not Republicans.

    Rouhani is not a new friend, he is Valerie Jarrett's brother.

    I'm home sick today, and can finally respond consistently to comments and stories, and this is the quality of conservative opinion I see on the Ticker today.

    Fair is Fair, wherever you are out there, you're an exception to the rule. Cheers.

    I has to hurt crazy right wingnuts to see that cowboy diplomacy was nuts. That when Iran leadership changed it was good for Iran, as much as replacing the Texas moron with Obama was good for America.

    It is your business when you are the leader of the free world, leadership position has a responsibility and a cost.
    BUT we don't need to worry about that anymore, Obama has demolished our leadership and standing in the world.
    Today we appease the tugs of the world and turn our back to those who support freedom and human rights.
