At long last ...

Tom Hayden makes a prediction now that the US and Cuba are finally moving toward normal relations:

... if the president has his wish, the Obama family will be seen on the streets of Havana before his term is up.

That seems a little over the top. But there can't be any doubt that this is welcome news. The linked article presents an interesting chronology of how both parties came to their present positions. The Pope doesn't figure in it at all, but the US left, Cuban assistance to African nations and Senator Patrick Leahy show up. Worth reading.
