The American people deserve to know in advance, what they can expect from a negative vote on the deal in Congress and, in turn, let their elected representatives know what they, the American people want. Are they willing to undertake a military undertaking if that is the only option?

Let's not kid ourselves. The deal with Iran that President Barack Obama so proudly announced on Tuesday does not prevent the Islamic Republic from becoming a nuclear power. Far from it. The unasked, and unanswered, question in all the predictable hubbub and blather is how much that matters.
