President Barack Obama's surprise decision this week to restore diplomatic relations with the communist nation is the surest sign yet those politics are changing, with some even suggesting it’s a political gambit aimed at cracking the Cuban-American community’s longtime support for the GOP. Nelson said you can see “in the polls, and you can see that just by going to Miami and talking to folks,” how much things have changed.

Cowboys on the Muleshoe Ranch in Borden County work to get some cattle into a truck on Dec. 3, 2014. The ranch and others across the state suffered through the state's driest year ever in 2011, forcing some to sell off many if not all of their animals or sending their cattle to other states to graze. Many ranchers have since worked to diversify their incomes with other enterprises including leasing water and hunting acres for deer, antelope and quail.

As often is the case, the truth lies somewhere in between. (AP Photo/Franklin Reyes, File)HAVANA (AP) — To many exiles and their allies, President Raul Castro is a brutal dictator who locks up dissenters in gulag-like jails, snuffs out political discourse and condemns his people to socialist poverty.
