The White House got the deal it wanted in Paris, but will it stand the test of time?


Six years after a major failure in a different European capital, Obama administration officials can sip champagne this weekend in Paris over a climate change agreement they claim gave them exactly what they wanted.

"I don't think we had to cave on anything, actually," a senior White House official said Saturday.

The Paris Agreement is a win for Obama's international agenda, despite expected backlash from Republicans in Congress.
