His remarks were disclosed by Cristina Fernandez, Argentina’s President, who met the former Cuban leader during a four-day visit to the communist island.
Mrs Fernandez said: “Fidel believes in Obama. He told me he had followed the inauguration of Barack Obama very closely, that he had watched the inauguration on television all day.
“He had a very good perception of President Obama.”
Well, Cuba is saying good things about us. That's change. I'll give the President the benefit of the doubt, especially considering he didn't go out and seek Castro's good graces. But this is still not necessarily a good sign.
