Howard Dean: Obama Admin Should Walk Away From Negotiating Table with Iran

Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean threw Joe Scarborough a curveball this morning during an appearance on Morning Joe when he agreed that the Obama Administration should walk away from the negotiating table concerning a nuclear agreement with Iran.

Dean is, of course, in favor of engaging Iran. But he agreed with Scaborough that the Obama Administration is “far, far too eager for a deal with Iran.”

Needless to say, the Iranians know this and have the Obama Administration on a string.

Ronald Reagan, of course, famously walked out on Mikhail Gorbachev during the Reykjavik Summit in 1986, but it would produce the dividend of the INF Treaty the following year.

I think it’s far more likely that Iran would walk away from the table. In which case, we might see John Kerry chase Mohammad Javid Zarif in the same way Madeleine Albright chased the late Yasser Arafat in Paris when he walked away from negotiations to end the Palestinian intifada shortly after rejecting a Palestinian state at Camp David.

For once, Dr. Dean has written a sound prescription. But don’t expect the Obama Administration to take its medicine.
