Sanders Cuba Problem

Wochit Postables
Bernie Sanders campaign is doing well. He won the first three nominating contests. However, he has a major problem: his admiration of Fidel Castro. On 60-Minutes, Sanders praised Castro's Cuban literacy efforts. CNN said that praise could become a long-term political headache for the Vermont senator's campaign. During Tuesday's debate, Sanders pointed out that Barack Obama had made comments similar to his about Cuba. "When dictatorships ... do something good, you acknowledge that, but you don't have to trade love letters with them." That won't calm the nerves of Democrats who are worried about how the GOP will weaponize Sanders' words.
