Today on The Signorile Show!

3:30pm ET - Yesterday, in Lausanne, Switzerland leaders from Iran and the United States, along with five other world powers, announced a framework accord on limiting Tehran’s nuclear program for the next 15 years, although several specific issues were left to a final agreement in June.  The accord is the result of two years of negotiations, and if it is carried out, would keep Iran’s nuclear facilities open under strict production limits, and may help with the thawing of the relationship between the US and Iran and possible lead to a lasting peace in the region.  Steve Clemons, the Washington editor at large for The Atlantic and editor of Atlantic Live joins us today to discuss the framework accord and what has to happen in order to translate it into a more specific, binding agreement.  You can also follow Steve on twitter.

4:35pm ET - Last month, the Canadian born Senator from Texas Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz became the first official candidate for president of The United States of America in the upcoming 2016 election, but according to Mimi Swartz the Executive Editor of Texas Monthly, if you want to fit him into the rich and colorful rites and rituals of Texas politicians…. Don’t waste your time, because Mr. Cruz is about as traditional a Texas politician as Ralph Nader.  Mimi joins us today to discuss Sen. Cruz and how he fits into Texas’ political culture and landscape, which she wrote all about in an op-ed for the New York Times.  You can also follow Mimi on twitter.
