Behind him wearing a hat is his attorney, Edward Jocko of New York. "I ain't got no quarrel with those Viet Cong," he said, setting off on a path that cost him more than three years of his career and nearly put him in prison. Ali became a symbolic, if unlikely, figure of the anti-war movement, though his mind was always more on resuming his career than furthering the cause. (AP Photo/GS)
