Over at Rare, I try to lay out some reasons that conservatives should be open to negotiations with Iran:
No nuclear deal will be perfect, and it would certainly be preferable for Iran to have no centrifuges and to come clean about all its past nuclear activities. But conservatives have always taken special pride in their emphasis on what is possible, not what is ideal. We do not let the perfect become the enemy of the good.
Conservative presidents from Eisenhower to the elder Bush made prudence the lodestar of their foreign policies. An Iran deal is in their tradition: a practical, restrained compromise that conservatives can embrace.
