Barack Obama ready for Iran talks

President Barack Obama said he is willing to begin talks with Iran -- a view echoed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Obama said that if Iran were willing to "unclench its fist" it would find an "extended hand" from the United States.

Obama's Middle East envoy, former Senator George Mitchell, is now touring the region.
