ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says the Iran nuclear deal is a 'very important moment.' Speaking to reporters after attending a Democratic caucus meeting at the U.S. capitol on Tuesday, Clinton said President Obama called her last night to tell her an agreement had been reached. "Based on what I know now... this is an important step in putting the lid on Iran's nuclear program," Clinton said. The former secretary of state also said the deal would allow the United States to turn its attention to preventing what it sees as other bad actions by Iran. The agreement reached between Iran and six major world powers will now be debated in the U.S. Congress, but Obama said on Tuesday he would veto any measure to block it.
