Q:  Can you comment on the Republican letter to Iran?  Can you comment on that?

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  I think it's somewhat ironic to see some members of Congress wanting to make common cause with the hardliners in Iran.  It's an unusual coalition.  I think what we’re going to focus on right now is actually seeing whether we can get a deal or not.  And once we do -- if we do -- then we’ll be able to make the case to the American people, and I'm confident we’ll be able to implement it.
