(CNSNews.com)- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) expressed tremendous enthusiasm and optimism at her press briefing today about the nuclear deal that the Obama administration and five other governments has negotiated with the Iranian regime of Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei.

Pelosi called the deal “historic,” “grand,” and “visionary.”

The Congress is currently considering the deal in an unusual procedure that does not handle the international agreement as a treaty but as an agreement between the president and a foreign government.

Under the U.S. Constitution, two-thirds of the Senate must vote to ratify a treaty. But, under special legislation set up to deal with this nuclear agreement, in order to ultimately block the agreement, Congress would need to pass a resolution of disapproval and then muster two-thirds votes in both houses to override a presidential veto of that resolution.

 “This is historic. This is grand. This is visionary. This is about peace,” Pelosi said at her briefing. “Some of our members are saying this is the first time since I have been here that I have been able to vote for peace rather than just against war. So, I have confidence in it. The president has authority to do this. The opportunity for Congress to reject it will be met with rejection. And we go forward.”
