SNEAK PEEK: Obama Admits Mistakes

The extra dynamic at play in the Democratic race -- Republican nominee-in-waiting Sen. John McCain -- threw fire at Obama also on Tuesday. At a press avail in Florida, he said he would not ever sit down with Cuban leader Raul Castro and slammed Obama for repeatedly saying he would meet U.S. enemies.

Asked if he believes that Obama is naïve in saying he would do so, McCain said, "I don't know if he is naïve or not, I know he is inexperienced, but that approach is something that I think would only serve to legitimize the person who has a many, many year record -- decades of record of cruelty and oppression to the people of Cuba."

Burton on this front. "John McCain and Hillary Clinton both have the experience of supporting a Bush Cuba policy that has failed America and the Cuban people for fifty years. Instead of empty rhetoric, Barack Obama actually has a strategy to help advance liberty for the Cuban people, starting with lifting all restrictions on family travel and cash remittances and pursuing direct diplomacy. Cuban Americans will be our best ambassadors for change, and will give the Cuban people more space from their regime."

In other news, the Obama campaign announced raising $55 million last month. Sen. Clinton, who brought in $35 million in February, announced raising $4 million since Tuesday.
