LISBON, Portugal (CNN) – Several nations once in the shadow of the Iron Curtain have a message for Republicans in Congress: Don't stop New START before it starts.
Making their appeal on behalf of the U.S.-Russian nuclear arms control treaty, the foreign ministers of Denmark, Norway, Latvia, Bulgaria, Hungary and Lithuania crashed a Saturday press conference by a senior U.S. administration official about talks with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

(CNN) - Republican Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty is publicly undecided over a presidential run in 2012, but he has a plan if he doesn't run.
"One thing I am planning is that if I don't run for president, I'm going to open a margarita bar in Florida," Pawlenty told CNN national political correspondent Jessica Yellin. "I'm going to get some Kenny Chesney music; I'm going to get a flower shirt."
(CNN) – Congressional priorities were the topic of the presidential and Republican weekly video and radio addresses this week as Republicans urged a vote on tax cuts and the president focused on approval of the New START treaty.
"A failure to ratify New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) would be a dangerous gamble with America's national security," President Barack Obama said Saturday. "There is enough gridlock, enough bickering. If there is one issue that should unite us – as Republicans and Democrats – it should be our national security."
