Obama - Losing His Base or Quietly Fighting for It?

Hosted by

Almost six years into the Obama presidency, a funeral is being held in Ferguson, Missouri, memorializing Michael Brown, the unarmed, young black man shot to death two weeks ago by a white policeman.  The White House has sent a delegation, but the first black president is not there. Did the President miss an opportunity by not going himself?
