When Barack Obama was running for President, the comparisons to Martin Luther King helped him gain the support needed to win the nomination and later the Presidency. Both are powerful speakers and family men; both are patriots and Christians; and both overcame racial boundaries.

Still, many who made those comparisons may want to see Obama be more of an advocate for the poor like King was and perhaps use some of King’s non-violent tactics to solve problems in the world.
