ABC News’ John Cochran and Lindsay Hamilton report: Just moments after Senator Barack Obama, D-Ill., finished his remarks three blocks away, Senator Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., took to the pulpit in Selma, Ala. and began by "giving praise to the Almighty."

Clinton, in Selma to commemorate the 42nd anniversary of the Bloody Sunday voting rights demonstrations, said she was there to "share the memories of a troubled past and hope for a better tomorrow."

She praised the leaders of the voting rights movement, and pointed out its impact on the current election- mentioning Obama by name.

"Today it’s giving Senator Obama the chance to run for President of the United States, and by its logic and spirit giving the same chance to Governor Bill Richardson, a Hispanic, and yes, it’s giving me that chance, too," she said.
