The decline in Cuba’s salience as a domestic political issue is an encouraging sign. It suggests that, over time, we might be able to have a more rational discussion about US interests, the changes that are occurring in Cuba itself, and how the United States might play a constructive role in improving the climate for human rights and democracy in Cuba.I hope that Geoff is right and that we will be able to have a rational discussion when it comes to the relationship between the people and the governments of the US and Cuba.
Obama doesn't seem interested in pushing discussions about Cuba or with its leadership. Neither does Romney but I imagine that members in a Romney administration would have different plans for "engaging" Cuba..
What do you think? I think that it's possible that Cuba didn't come up during the presidential debates because people are finally realizing that US policy is unlikely to change until one or both Castros pass from this earth.
