Obama and McCain on Iran: 60 Minutes


Obama:

“We have not applied the kind of tough diplomacy over the last eight years that I think could have made a difference.”
“I don’t think it’s acceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon.  And I haven’t taken any options, including military, off the table.”

McCain:

“Suppose that the Iranians had nuclear weapons, and you had a whole lot of other information about Iranian intentions, and you could make the case to the American people and to the world, I think it’s obvious that we would have to prevent what we are absolutely certain is a direct threat to the lives of the American people.”
