Live-blogging the Dem CNN-Univision Debate
Cuba

With this week's announcement from Fidel Castro that he is at last stepping down after decades as his nation's strongman, the candidates were asked, before a television audience on Univision that is mostly Latino.

Both said they would talk to the new Cuban leaders, with Obama first to answer the question. CNN's Campbell Brown nailed him for an apparent change in his approach; he was not jumping in this debate to say that he would end the embargo of Cuba. Apparently there was a time when he stated his desire to see that embargo end.

Clinton made the point of saying she would talk to Cuba's new leaders only after a great deal of preparation, and only with bipartisan delegations behind her.
