While I have little to support this, my hunch about Hillary is this.  There 
would be no point from her view to make a stand in favor of opening ties to 
Cuba and lots to lose if the gusanos decided to target her as being "soft" 
on Cuba.  I had heard that Bill Clinton had given informal directives NOT to 
harass people going to Cuba, so while there was a ban on travel, there was 
little or no consequence for doing so, even for those without a special 
travel visa.

My guess is that Hillary is paying lip service to the anti-Castro group, 
and, once in office will do the same as her husband.
