Obama meets with Sen. Kennedy's widow
BOSTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama, who is to honor Edward M. Kennedy with a funeral eulogy, visited early Saturday with the late senator's widow.
The president donned an overcoat and dodged raindrops to walk across a downtown street from his hotel to the Fairmont Copley Plaza. Obama spokesman Bill Burton says Obama and Mrs. Kennedy met privately for about 10 minutes.
Obama spent 15 minutes inside a hotel with one floor lined with Kennedy family pictures. It also served as family headquarters during the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
A series of limousines were parked outside several hours before Kennedy's funeral.
He died Tuesday from brain cancer at age 77.
