Following a speech today in which President Obama called for unity over his Iran nuclear deal, News2Share contributor and White House commentator Jon-Christopher Bua reflects on a similar speech John F. Kennedy made 50 years ago at American University.

This comes two days after an exchange between Bua and White House press secretary Josh Earnest, where Bua wondered whether this deal was being pushed with the same urgency that JFK had when he faced the Soviet Union.
