Diane talks with James Hohmann, national political correspondent for the Washington Post and author of the "Daily 202" newsletter.
In a televised address to the nation, President Barack Obama outlined a dramatic change in U.S. policy toward Cuba. The U.S. will restore full diplomatic relations with the island nation that sits 90 miles off the tip of Florida, and it will establish an embassy in Havana. The president said a half-century of isolating Cuba and its communist regimes has not worked and it’s time to begin a new chapter. Many Republicans and prominent Cuban-Americans, such as Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, sharply criticized the announcement. Join Diane and guests in a discussion on the future of U.S.-Cuba relations and what led up to the policy shift.
