Obama's Next Test on Iran? Keeping His Party on Board

As President Barack Obama tries to achieve what has been called a "historic" deal with Iran over their nuclear program, he's already facing a number of challenges from Republicans and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who are fighting to diminish the agreement, according to an NBC News analysis. But Obama's first test is to ensure that Democrats are on board with him, according to NBC News. Already, there is bipartisan legislation that scrutinizes the deal.

He vowed to kill the deal.
