FILE - In this file photo taken Nov. 2, 2008 in Miami, son of civil rights icon Jesse Jackson Sr., former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., speaks to Obama supporters during a campaign rally for Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama.  At 71, Jackson Sr. still keeps a hectic schedule and speaks extemporaneously on civil rights issues of all kinds. But he struggles when addressing one thing: Jesse Jackson Jr., the son and heir to Jackson’s political influence who abandoned his congressional seat last week because of mental health problems and two federal investigations.
