DOVER, N.H. (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton says the U.S. must move forward with a nuclear deal with Iran "with our eyes wide open," noting she does not believe it will get Iran to stop sponsoring terrorist activity in the region.

The Democratic presidential candidate says the deal "gives us a better chance than a lesser chance" to improve security for allies, like Israel, in the Middle East.

But she describes her backing of the Iran nuclear deal as a "cold, calculating assessment," saying she does not trust the Iranians to change their "bad behavior" in other areas.

Clinton is speaking at the first town hall of her 2016 campaign in Dover, New Hampshire.
