GUESTS: TOM GJELTEN NPR Diplomatic Correspondent ROBERT PASTOR Professor of Political Science, Emory University (Atlanta, GA) Author, A Century's Journey: How Great Powers Shape the World (Basic Books, Dec. 1999) FERNANDO REMIREZ DE ESTENOZ Head of Cuban Interests Section (Washington, DC) To a casual observer, it might seem like U.S. policy towards Cuba consists mainly of waiting for Fidel Castro to die. Some Americans are ready for a liberalizing of relations with Cuba, but that would also require some changes in Castro's position. Join Juan Williams and guests to discuss whether there's any possibility of a diplomatic opening with Cuba, and if Fidel Castro is capable of change.
