  1. U.S., Cuban Leaders May Meet at Summit

President Barack Obama and Cuban leader Raul Castro are expected to have substantial in person interaction for the first time at the Summit of the Americas in Panama this week. The question is — talk about making things awkward — whether Obama will remove Cuba from the U.S.’s list of state sponsors of terrorism before that meeting. The White House says the timing rests with the State Department, but nobody seriously expects a change before Castro and Obama meet face to face.
