*Update* Democrats vs. Republicans on Martin Luther King Day

My post was originally made at 9:30 am EST. Since then some of the candidates have added some recognition of MLK Day. It is now almost 3:00 pm EST. Updates are indicated in red:

Here is what the Democratic Candidates are showing on their web sites to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Three of the candidates (Hillary, Edwards, and Kucinich) have prominent pictures of Dr. King on their home pages as shown below. Obama does not but his site features him speaking at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta where he obviously talks about Dr. King.

So what about the Republicans? No republican candidate has a picture of Dr. King on their site. Only Mitt Romney has a press release honoring Dr. King. The others have nothing at all that I can find at the time of this posting.

Mitt Romney: Nothing on the home page but there is a press release honoring Dr. King. Now there is a big picture of him and his wife at an MLK event as one of his rotating pictures on the home page.

Rudy Giuliani: Nothing. Still nothing.

John McCain: Nothing. There is now a link to a statement on the home page.

Mike Huckabee: Nothing. There is now a link to a blog post from his home page.

Fred Thompson: Nothing. Still nothing.
