President Obama Opens a Door to Cuba More than 50 years after the US ended diplomatic relations with Cuba, President Obama made history today — renewing ties that were ended before he was born. There have been 18 months of secret negotiations, ended by a phone call with Raoul Castro, the President of Cuba. The Administration will open an embassy in Havana, ask Congress to end the trade embargo and use other means to improve Cuba's human rights record. We hear how the deal came about, the role of Pope Francis, and sample political reaction.
Historic Thaw in US-Cuban Relations and 2016 Presidential Contenders Hillary Clinton is still playing it coy when it comes to another run for the White House. Jeb Bush has beat her to the punch, becoming the first major player to say he'll “actively explore” a possible campaign. We hear early assessments of what's in store between now and 2016.
