I am very happy to see on CNN's website that President Obama has lifted travel restrictions on people with relatives in Cuba to Cuba! This is not normalization. And restrictions on the rest of us are still in place. But it may be the first step. To say that this is long over due would a monumental understatement.

I think this has only been made possible by Obama's sizable victory in the election. Had he taken the strategy taken by Gore and Kerry (i.e. a "big state" strategy) he would have been dependent on Florida. But because he built such a broad coalition both geographically and ideologically, he can afford to risk defeat in Florida by taking this step.
This is great! I hope to hear more along these lines over the next few years!
