Some news from Trinidad:

Mr. Obama came to this lush and mountainous Caribbean island with the aim of forging new relationships in a region that felt ignored by his predecessor, and on that score he clearly succeeded. He tamped down tensions over Cuba by declaring he sought “a new beginning” there. By the summit meeting’s end, Mr. Chávez said he was ready to send an ambassador to the United States.

Yet some old tensions remained. President Evo Morales of Bolivia confronted Mr. Obama during a private session with a charge that the United States is meddling in his country and had plotted to assassinate him. Mr. Obama responded on Sunday, saying, “I absolutely oppose and condemn any effort at violent overthrows of democratically elected governments.”

Good to hear.
