Obama can't be a movement leader and President

[VIDEO] Via Newsalert, I got wind of this interview between Joe Scarborough and Van Jones from the MSNBC program Morning Joe. Jones was once an advisor to President Obama on "green jobs". He speaks of the confusion over whether or not Obama is trying to be a movement leader or the President. For example, should Dr. Martin Luther King have been President or would the Civil Rights movement have greater success with President Lyndon Johnson who is able to navigate the political process?

That is the question, the idea that Jones sought to explain.
