Have A Cigar!

Here's one foreign policy "triumph" that George W. Bush may not have planned, but can toast anyway: He will become the first president in 48 years to leave office without Fidel Castro in power.

Castro could outlast many people, but he couldn't outlast time.

It would be nice if Bush could underscore this moment by announcing a revocation of the U.S. embargo of Cuba (if we can trade with Castro Jr. in Venezuela...), but sometimes dumb policies outlast the reason for their existence in the first place.
