REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach.- Barack Obama’s handshake with Raúl Castro at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service made headlines around the world, but it’s understandable that the president’s “selfie” with Danish leader Helle Thorning-Schmidt received more buzz.  The U.S.-Cuba drama is about as sexy as one of those aging daytime soap operas, with protagonists (or their descendants) who stick to their assigned roles and go through the motions, even after much of the audience has moved on. (Even if your interest is in Latin America, “the handshake” deserved less attention than “the kiss,” Obama’s greeting of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who notoriously cancelled her fall visit to Washington on account of Edward Snowden’s revelations that the NSA spied on her.)
