Obama Speaks Truth to Power About Cuba

In Florida, there's no group more organized and politically powerful than the anti-Castro Cuban-American lobby. So it shows some serious cajones for Barack Obama to go down to Miami today to tell Cuban-Americans that the U.S. should ease its Cuba embargo. As president Obama would allow Americans to travel to Cuba and send money to relatives there. He would also try to tone down the hostility.

And John McCain's Cuba policy? More bluster, of course. This from the man who supported greater engagement with Cuba when he was running for president the first time, eight years ago.
