Cuba: A Country for Old Men

Hosted by

Cuba: A Country for Old MenIn 2008, Raul Castro took the Presidency of Cuba from his ailing brother Fidel.  Prior to last week's first Communist Party Central Committee meeting in 14 years, Raul promised economic reforms and what he called "systematic rejuvenation" of Party leadership.  But, "We're not seeing new blood—this is the oldest blood Cuba has." That's according to Anne Louise Bardach, writer for Newsweek and the Daily Beast and author of, Without Fidel: A Death Foretold in Miami, Havana and Washington.
