WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will join former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton at the Lincoln Memorial today to mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Obama says he considers the 1963 march and the Martin Luther
Jr. "I Have a Dream" speech a "seminal event."

He says the anniversary is a good time to reflect on how far the country has come and still has to go.

OMG! How far we have to go? Are you kidding me? To put this fool's name in the same context with MLK is an obscenity! King was a great, peaceful, loving man who brought people together. Obama is a DIVIDER who cares only about his own interests, while destroying this country. We HAVE gone backwards, thanks to Obama. Sickening.
