Extraordinary Scene on Washington Mall

Jan 18, 2009 3:50pm

ABC News’ Rick Klein Reports: More than a few people are making comparisons to the scene today and Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington — and it’s hard to think of a more apt connection to make.

The energy in the city is tremendous today — and while this so many people are here to see the superstars, the people I’ve talked to seem so anxious just to make connections, any connections. It’s a glimpse of the president-elect’s promise, as well as the burdens of his expectations.

ABC NewsNOW will carry the remarks by President-elect Barack Obama this afternoon. You can watch our coverage live online HERE.
