    Raul Castro steps down as head of Cuba's Communist Party - UPI.com

    He said his resignation will allow a younger group of politicians "full of passion and anti-imperialist spirit" to take control.

    Miguel Díaz-Canel, Cuba's current president, is expected to take over leadership of the Party.

    This might be a good time for Biden to reach out to the new leader and bring about closer ties to our island neighbor.

    We made friends with and trade with Vietnam. But a nice little nearby island is still a BigCommieThreat to the old Cubanos whose wealthy fathers lost their lands. It's time to get over it.
