US-Iran nuclear talks becoming the norm
VIENNA - Here's the scene Saturday in Vienna: The top American and Iranian diplomats are facing each other across a square table in a 19th century palace.
The atmosphere was calm as Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign minister Mohammed Javad Zarif started the final push for a generation-defining nuclear agreement.
Just a short while ago, a snapshot of representatives from these two enemies engaged in discussions on nuclear and other matters would have been a bombshell felt in capitals around the world.
Now, whether or not the U.S. and its negotiating powers can finalize a nuclear deal with Iran in the next several days, it's hard to imagine the tentative warming of U.S.-Iranian relations ending anytime soon.
It's become the new normal.
