The most tragic consequence of Congress killing the deal would be that it would eliminate the prospect for greater U.S.-Iran cooperation in the region on areas of mutual concern.

"I am not going to second guess [President Barack Obama] because I was in a position to set this in motion," Clinton said. "I want to wait and see what he and Secretary Kerry decide." She then followed up with what might be one of the worst rejoinders ever delivered from the campaign trail.
