The Question: The U.S. starts to choose a president this week. If you could send the candidates one message, what would it be?
If it should prove true that the times they are a-changin', how about trying out some fresh, new ideas on Latin America? Lifting the embargo against Cuba could be an inexpensive, non-bellicose move that would not only puncture but even erase most of the pointless, damaging anti-Americanism that sweeps the region. Mr. Chavez’s role as Cuba’s clinical support unit would certainly be diminished in the impending Cuban transition. And it would turn out all the more easy for an African-American president to accomplish.
