In negotiating an arms control treaty with Russia to reduce nuclear weapon stockpiles, Obama picks up where Kennedy and Reagan left off. "US-Russia agreement on a new treaty to reduce nuclear weapons is being hailed as President Obama’s first real foreign-policy victory and a personal triumph for a leader who envisions a nuclear-weapons-free world. But that vision stretches back at least as far as President John Kennedy, and actually came tantalizingly close to fruition under President Ronald Reagan. Indeed, many nuclear disarmament advocates share a sense that the treaty Mr. Obama announced Friday is the first step of many toward a nuclear-free world, given the long-standing and 'centrist' support behind nuclear-weapons reduction and elimination."
