Talking to Raúl

Both WOLAblog and The Havana Note note that Arlen Specter has requested a meeting with Raúl Castro. His quote: "I'm a firm believer in dialogue." Even further: ""I've been to Cuba three times and I think the chances are really on the horizon for re-establishing relations with Cuba now that Fidel Castro is no longer in charge." He's part of my collection of Republicans against the embargo--the previous two entrants were George Will and Brent Scowcroft.

Raúl hasn't responded to Specter's request. If he does, it'll throw the Republican Party into even more turmoil because of McCain's constant assertions that anyone who wants to speak to adversaries is soft and naive.
