Fidel Castro endorses Obama

Reflections of Fidel
The empire’s hypocritical politics, by Fidel Castro, May 26, 2008

IT would be dishonest of me to remain silent after hearing the speech Obama delivered on the afternoon of May 23 at the Cuban American National Foundation created by Ronald Reagan. I listened to his speech, as I did McCain’s and Bush’s. I feel no resentment towards him, for he is not responsible for the crimes perpetrated against Cuba and humanity. Were I to defend him, I would do his adversaries an enormous favor. I have therefore no reservations about criticizing him and about expressing my points of view on his words frankly . . .

it's long and rambling, but if you want to read the whole thing
