(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with "No God but God" author Reza Islan and CNN's Candy Crowley, Gloria Borger and David Gergen about the breaking news on US dealing with Iran via a senior envoy {the State Department's William Burns} over its nuclear program. [ISLAN - says the US wants to reach out to Iran to talk about these issues; talks about the Iranian leadership; doubts there can be a diplomatic victory for the administration.] [GERGEN - calls this a break with past administration policy; adds it undercuts Senator John McCain's argument.] [BORGER - says there may be a possibility of a resolution over Iran's nuclear program; comments on what this could mean for presidential candidate McCain.] [CROWLEY - says this bolsters Senator Barack Obama's position on holding talks; agrees it is a huge signal.]
Cooper, Anderson
