Next up in the game of "Persuade Jon Kyl to Let the New START Treaty Pass" is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who the New York Times reports has already been heavily involved in lobbying the Arizona Republican senator:
Any misgivings Mrs. Clinton may have about letting down Mr. Putin are likely to be outweighed by the administration's fears about souring relations with all of Russia if the treaty is not ratified.
Noting that the Russian government has cooperated with the United States on Iran and Afghanistan, she said, "This is also a treaty that is critical to our bilateral relationship with Russia."
It's weird to think one politician could derail everything in the world, but them's the facts. You either get Sen. Kyl to do the right thing, or you force him to look ridiculous doing the wrong one.
