Flashpoint Ferguson: Latest news on crisis roiling U.S.

In this Feb. 4, 2014, photo, President Barack Obama speaks at Buck Lodge Middle School in Adelphi, Md.  Six years into his presidency, Obama is unveiling a budget on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, that for once does not herald a partisan legislative showdown. There's no push to overhaul health care as he did in 2009, no drive as in 2010 to restrict Wall Street, or to increase taxes as in 2011 and 2012, or to halt automatic spending cuts as in 2013.
