Barack Obama touches down in Havana Sunday to cap a long-unimaginable rapprochement with Cuba and burnish a presidential legacy dulled by Middle East quagmires and partisan sniping.As Air Force One rolls to a stop, Obama will become the first sitting U.S. president to visit Cuba since Calvin Coolidge arrived on a battleship in 1928, before the discovery of penicillin or invention of the ballpoint pen.Obama came to power seeking to unfreeze that time warp and complete the rapprochement Kennedy sought with revolutionary Cuba before he was cut down in Dallas.For three days in Cuba, the usually calculating Obama wants to reap the rewards of his audacious gamble.Obama's visit to Cuba is the capstone of that effort.
