The AP reported late yesterday that former President, Bill Clinton, will join Hillary during her visit to Selma, Alabama on Sunday.

The Clinton campaign announced that the former president would join his wife in a symbolic march across the Edmund Pettus bridge, where civil rights workers were beaten by state troopers in 1965. Obama also will participate in the march, along with civil rights activists and others.

Bill Clinton also will be inducted that day in the National Voting Rights Hall of Fame — another high-profile opportunity for the Clintons to grab the spotlight from the charismatic Obama.

The joint appearance marks the first time the Clintons have appeared together publicly since she announced her candidacy in January.
