Not Exactly a High Five

A handshake between Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro at Mandela's memorial service has enraged Cuban-American lawmakers. Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen called it "nauseating and disheartening," but to ignore Castro's extended hand would have been "disrespectful to South Africa and to Mandela," said Philip Peters, president of the Cuba Research Center.
