Two days before the 50th anniversary of the late President Kennedy’s death, two Democrats who followed in his footsteps paid tribute during a solemn ceremony at Arlington National Ceremony.
President Obama and former President Clinton — joined by their wives, first lady Michelle Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — laid a wreath at Kennedy’s gravesite. The couples then stood silently, hands over their hearts, while a military bugler played “Taps.”
Friday marks 50 years since Kennedy, the nation’s 35th president, was shot and killed in Dallas.
The wreath-laying was one of several events Mr. Obama and Mr. Clinton attended together on Wednesday.
On Wednesday evening, Mr. Clinton and Mr. Obama will attend a dinner in Washington honoring those who were given the Medal of Freedom this year.
