Rep. Obey Comments On Castro's Resignation

Despite Castro's resignation, it looks like the U.S. will not lift its trade embargo on Cuba any time soon. That's according to Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte. Congressman Dave Obey says we'll have to wait and see what the resignation fully means. Obey says Castro's brother doesn't have the same leadership qualities that Fidel had. "You're going to have a different political situation in Cuba, but that doesn't mean they will have a different policy. We should give them any opportunity to demonstrate that if they do have a change in policy that it will be welcomed by the United States," says Representative Dave Obey. The congressman says we should try and use this opportunity to show we are willing to work with any government that treats its people well.
