U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel and Cuba

He's strongly opposed to the trade embargo against Cuba -- so much so, in fact, that he was the single lawmaker Jimmy Carter invited to accompany him to Havana this year. Hagel considered going, but ultimately didn't because he wanted to participate in the Senate debate over Trade Promotion Authority. He nevertheless hailed Carter's trip: "What Jimmy Carter's saying . . . is exactly right: Our 40-year policy toward Cuba is senseless."

  1. I'm hoping Senator Hagel runs for President. He'd do great things for U.S. foreign policy.
