Obama eyes Cuba visit, says Castro not "an ideologue"

In a newly released Yahoo interview, Obama said, “I am very much interested in going to Cuba, but I think the conditions have to be right.”

The president told correspondent Olivier Knox, “My hope is that sometime next year we look at the conditions there and we say, you know what? Now would be a good time to shine a light on progress that’s been made, but also maybe to nudge the Cuban government in a new direction.”
