Fifty-two years ago, President Kennedy gave a pivotal speech at American University’s commencement. He called for an agreement with the Soviet Union on nuclear testing — even though the two Cold War rivals couldn’t agree on much else. Veteran journalist Marvin Kalb covered that speech. He joins us to explore the parallels with President Obama’s speech on the same campus promoting a new nuclear deal — this time with Iran.
