Lieberman not onside with the Obama-Medvedev Treaty

Senator Joseph Lieberman, formerly a Democrat and now an Independent, for one, isn't sold on the Obama nuclear treaty with Russia.
From the AP:
Sen. Joe Lieberman, a Connecticut independent, says that America's nuclear arsenal must be modernized. That might be difficult if President Barack Obama keeps to his pledge not to build new warheads or engage in underground testing.

Lieberman says he doesn't think the new treaty right now has the 67 votes needed for ratification.
Say what you will about Lieberman, he's come a long way  since running on the same ticket as Al "Doomsayer" Gore.  He's quite reasonable of foreign affairs.  While he still is essentially a Democrat on domestic issues, at least he gets it when it comes to dealing with other nations and with terrorists.
