Misplaced right quote there; should be:

  "p" is true if and only if p.

I would prefer to use the following punctuation:

   "'p' is true" if and only if p.

I don't think you should. :-) Quotation is term-forming operation, so "'p' is true" if and only if p has the same grammatical form as "Obama if and only if p", i.e., it is ill-formed.
