Cuban Deal Part of Hillary’s Legacy
If Hillary Clinton ever stops flirting with politics and buckles down for a presidential run, she will probably promote the only foreign policy “success” during her stint as secretary of state: The Obama administration’s thaw with Cuba. “Clinton’s advocacy on behalf of opening a new relationship with Cuba began almost as soon as she came into office,” writes Josh Rogin at Bloomberg View. “Obama had campaigned on a promise to engage enemies, but the White House initially was slow to make good on that pledge, and on the Cuba front enacted only a modest relaxation of travel rules. From the start, Clinton pushed to hold Obama to his promise with regard to Cuba.” And the rest, as the scribes say, is history. With Hillary’s résumé sporting such events as the Benghazi scandal and the big, red reset button with Russia, any empty gains with Cuba will form the platform of her foreign policy experience.
