Barack Obama sits inside Rosa Parks bus

President Barack Obama took a moment from fundraising in Michigan on Wednesday to visit the Henry Ford Museum and sit in the Montgomery, Ala. city bus made famous by Rosa Parks.

Obama said he took the time to sit in the bus to "ponder the courage and tenacity that is part of our very recent history."

The image was shot yesterday, but was made available to msnbc.com today.
