Here are the last two paragraphs of this article An Opportunity for Bill Richardson to Shine Once Again from the Huffington Post:
Long ago, American foreign policy towards Cuba was hijacked by special interest groups concentrated in Miami. Now that the winds of change are blowing in Washington, Bill Richardson has the perfect opportunity to invite Cuban economic czar Carlos Lage to Washington and inform him that change has come to policies that punish American businesses while creating the perfect scapegoat for economic mismanagement in Cuba. With regime change in Washington imminent, America is going to have a higher I.Q. to work with. No longer will the U.S. assist the Cuban government’s monopoly over its economy by fencing off American commerce and influence.
Now is the time for Sec. Richardson to promote a free trade agreement with Cuba. Such a bold move would do more to bring structural economic and political change to Cuba than anything we have ever seen. Sec. Richardson’s diplomatic skills would shine once more as American business prospers while American geopolitical interests are served once again by the stroke of his pen.
