Obama won't try to re-create King's 'Dream' moment

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama's address Wednesday from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, representing a symbolic moment in U.S. history.

Virginia governor: From rising star to liability

Washington (CNN) - Prosecutors hope to determine by Labor Day whether Virginia's first family broke any laws regarding a gift-giving scandal that has engulfed Gov. Bob McDonnell and tarnished the once-sterling reputation of the Republican politician, a source with knowledge of the matter told CNN.

Lawyers for McDonnell and his wife met with prosecutors in the city of Alexandria on Monday as the Justice Department sought clarity over previously undisclosed gifts given to the governor and his family by the chief executive of a troubled dietary supplement company.
