This will be an election year in the United States and every political act will be seen through the prism of electoral convenience. The topic of Cuba does not escape this conditioning, especially in terms of Washington’s actions regarding the advancement of relations between the two countries.
Reestablishing relations with Cuba was a solid success for the Obama administration, to the point that — except from the Cuban-American extreme right — no political sector has firmly opposed that decision.
So far, the topic of Cuba has barely surfaced in the presidential debates. It is quite obvious that the Republicans are avoiding it so as not to expose their internal contradictions while the Democrats are doing it for the opposite reason, since it is not an issue of dispute between the party’s candidates.
