Picture of the Day
President Obama speaks to the audience at last night's gala at Ford's Theatre, where actor Sidney Poitier and filmmaker George Lukas received the Lincoln medal in the newly-renovated historical landmark. The flag bunting in the background marks where Lincoln was assassinated in April, 1865.
A truly choke-up moment on today's 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birthday.
