Can an American president make big, historic changes in the country's direction with a relatively narrow base of political support? That was the challenge President Barack Obama faced when he pushed health care reform through Congress, and it's the same problem he faces now in trying to win support for a breakthrough nuclear deal with Iran.Obama was confident and combative as he made his case this week on Iran. Iran is an issue on which Obama is so hot he's combustible. On the substance, I agree with Obama.Those who think more sanctions can gain a better deal are, as Obama said at AU, buying a "fantasy".Obama's problem is that for many members of Congress, pressured by pro-Israel lobbying groups and suspicious of Iran, the question is closer. Obama clearly sees the Iran deal as the defining foreign-policy achievement of his presidency.
