Inauguration Obama King

FILE - In this Oct. 16, 2011, file photo, President Barack Obama speaks at the dedication of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington. Monday's inaugural may be Obama's big day, but Martin Luther King Jr. will loom large over the festivities. A quirk in the calendar pushed Obama's public swearing-in onto the national holiday honoring the slain civil rights leader, and inaugural planners have taken pains to acknowledge that fact. Going into his second term, Obama seems to have put King at the front of his mind, too.  (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)
