On the cusp of the two-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Senator Barack Obama will present a plan on Sunday aimed at hastening the rebuilding of New Orleans and restructuring how the federal government responds to future catastrophes in America.
After outlining his plan during a morning speech at First Emanuel Baptist Church on Sunday, Mr. Obama is scheduled to take a walking tour of a city neighborhood. The procession of politicians, particularly Democrats, who are set to pass through New Orleans this week are eager to use the city as an example of why Americans need their government and the challenges facing the next president.
