Obama, Biden lays wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns

Barack Obama laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns on Sunday, somberly pausing to honor America's war heroes in the midst of a mostly festive weekend prelude to taking on the presidency.

Just over 50 hours from becoming the 44th president of the United States, Obama walked with Vice President-elect Joe Biden to the tomb site at Arlington National Cemetery, placed his hand over his heart as a bugler played taps and then joined Biden in easing the wreath onto a stand.
