Iran nuclear talks extended, Defense Secretary Hagel resigns, and Millions vote in Tunisia

The deadline for a nuclear deal with Iran has been extended for seven months. We'll take a look at what the extension could mean with Trita Parsi, president of the National Iranian American Council, and Joseph Cirincione, president of Ploughshares Fund. And, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel resigned his post this morning amid rumors that President Obama pressured him to step down. We talk to Steve Clemons, Washington editor at large for The Atlantic,about the resignation. Then, on Sunday voters in Tunisia cast their ballots to elect a new president, nearly four years since the Arab Spring ousted Ben Ali from power. Ikbel Achour was in Tunisia working on election monitoring. She joins us to discuss the results of yesterday’s vote.
