Neither as President nor as Secretary of State would Hillary Clinton have delivered a rapprochement with Cuba.
She comes out of the Cold War liberal tradition that can never forgive the Castros for having made President Kennedy look stupid.
Behind that, she started out as a Goldwater Girl.
So instead, this has been achieved by a President who is a curious combination of an Eisenhower Republican and an icon of the Radical Left.
And by a Secretary of State who both fought in, and then opposed, the Vietnam War. He would have made a far better President than the too-rich-to-serve boy by whom he was defeated.
