Kerry and Bush Together to Honor Jackie Robinson

From First Read:

Voting bloc of the day: President Bush headlines the ceremony awarding a posthumous Congressional Gold Medal to Jackie Robinson at the Capitol at 2:00 pm. Joining Bush at the event is John Kerry, who waged a "three-year, start-to-finish legislative crusade" to get Robinson the medal, a Kerry aide tells us. Kerry will comment on Robinson's civil rights record, and we suspect Bush will, too. The Kerry aide says Jesse Jackson also will be on hand
