    If it isn't a Treaty requiring 2/3 Senate approval, why bother having a vote?

    Well, maybe because we begged iran to get this treaty and we don't want to look weak??? Looking weak will make them want to build nukes?

    You can ignore the answer to your question, if you like. Tehon is correct, although actually both Democrats and Republicans in Congress were whiny bitches.

    Politics has a way of bringing out the whine in people, democrats included. However it was the republican letter to Iran that compelled Obama to throw a bone to Congress so he could buy time to finalize the agreement.
