Obama admin may lift travel bans on Cuba: Clinton
Sen. Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday the incoming Obama administration wanted to lift travel restrictions on families wishing to visit relatives in Cuba and urged Havana to make its own concessions.

Speaking at her Senate confirmation hearing, Clinton said she hoped the Cuban government would look at freeing political prisoners and open up the economy.

"The president-elect (Barack Obama) is committed to lifting the family travel restrictions and the remittance restrictions." she said.
