Clinton urges quick ratification of nuclear arms treaty

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged the lame duck Senate Wednesday to ratify the new Russian nuclear arms control treaty, warning that a failure to do so would undermine a critical need for "stability, transparency and predictability."

Clinton, appearing on Capitol Hill to push for approval of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, said the administration intends "to do everything we can during this lame duck session to get a vote to ratify this treaty."

"This is not an issue that can afford to be postponed," she said.

    That'd be nice, but the republic members of the senate will filibuster our security away, then blame the President for lack of a treaty
