Take Elias Antonio Saca, the fortysomething president of El Salvador.
It seems there is a debate going on in the national parliament on whether El Salvador should re-establish full diplomatic relations with the Castro regime, which were severed back in 1959.
Parties of both the Right and the Left (of course) are toying with the idea, given growing business ties between the two countries.
Not Mr Saca.
Asked for his views, he told reporters that while he remained president, there was bugger all chance of establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba. Not until Cubans could freely and democratically elect their own leaders, he said.
I can’t wait for the predictably nasty reaction from Havana.
