Republican Sens. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul have been sparring over President Obama's decision to reopen relations with communist Cuba.
A growing chorus of Americans – including Cuban-Americans – and lawmakers view the current US-Cuba policies as a relic of the Cold War.

In sort-of announcing for the 2016 presidential race this week, Jeb Bush said he wanted to have 'conversations with citizens' before deciding whether to formally run. It's a tried-and-true rhetorical fig leaf.
