Clinton Calls For an End to the Cuba Embargo

The Clinton campaign is clearly betting that this will be a winning issue in Florida next year...and it also happens to be the right thing to do.
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called for an end to the U.S. embargo of Cuba on Friday, setting up a clear contrast with her Republican rivals on an important issue that divides Florida.
"The Cuba embargo needs to go once and for all," the former secretary of state declared during a speech at Florida International University.
"Engagement is not a gift to the Castros," Clinton said, referring to Fidel and Raul Castro, the former and current leaders of Cuba. "It is a threat to the Castros."
"Lifting the embargo doesn't set back the advance of freedom," she asserted, "it advances freedom where it is most desperately needed."
