Clyburn: 'Dr. King would have evolved'

by Jeremy Hooper
Clyburn
"I think Dr. King would have evolved, much like President Obama has evolved, much like I have evolved. Al Sharpton, a lot of us have evolved on this. I don't believe that at the time that Dr. King passed away or was taken from us that he was then where I am today. I just don't believe that. I don't remember him ever addressing this in any of his writings or speeches, but I believe that all of us grow. I think it was Thomas Jefferson who once said one should not be expected to wear the same jacket as a man that he wore as a child. That's the way I feel. And I think that I have grown to a different size jacket today when it comes to this question."

House Asst. Minority Leader and Civil Rights pioneer Jim Clyburn (D-SC), speaking to CNN
