Who is he speaking with?
Why, that would be Hassan Rouhani, the president of Iran.... yes, that Iran.
Their conversation today officially ended a three decades stand-off between the US and Iran.
Here's part of what the President said:
"The two of us discussed our ongoing efforts to reach an agreement over Iran's nuclear program," Obama said. "I reiterated to President Rouhani what I said in New York: While there will surely be important obstacles to moving forward, and success is by no means guaranteed, I believe we can reach a comprehensive agreement."This is big stuff, my friends. The history books are taking note as we speak.
I will continue to believe that peace is possible.
and....this is exactly what I voted for in 2008.
