Obama to Speak on 50th Anniversary of MLK "I Have a Dream" Speech: "Won't Be as Good"

Who would MLK bomb?


As President Obama prepares to deliver a major address to mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, he's making clear that his speech won't hold a candle to Martin Luther King Jr.'s seminal address.

"Let me just say for the record right now, it won't be as good as the speech 50 years ago," said Obama, who added that he was still working on the address that he will deliver from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Wednesday.
