Barack Obama 2012

FILE - In this Sunday March 4, 2007 file photo, from left, Brown Chapel AME Church pastor James Jackson, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, and Rev. Clete Kiley, hold hands and sing at the end of a church service in Selma, Ala. on the commemoration of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. protest march from Selma to Montgomery, Ala. How unthinkable it was, not so long ago, that a presidential election would pit a candidate fathered by an African against another condemned as un-Christian. And yet, here it is: Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney, an African-American and a white Mormon, representatives of two groups and that have endured oppression to carve out a place in the United States. How much progress has America made against bigotry? (AP Photo/Rob Carr)
