START Treaty Likely to be Ratified Despite Jon Kyl
Chuck Todd says Jon Kyl can't stand Obama. That personal animosity is probably fueling his desire to delay the START treaty ratification until after the lame duck session. Chuck says for the treaty to be ratified it needs to get from 58 to 67 votes, which is doable. John Kerry and republican Dick Lugar are pushing for the treaty ratification. Chuck says that the treaty ratification would strengthen Dmitry Medvedev. If it doesn't get ratified, it will strengthen Putin.
