Paying tribute to Sen. Bob Dole, an 'American giant'
At the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, President Biden and others gathered to pay tribute to former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, an “American giant” who served the country in war and in politics with pragmatism, self-deprecating wit and a bygone era’s sense of civility.
President Biden, a Democrat, called the Republican Dole “a man of extraordinary courage, both physical and moral courage — a war hero who sacrificed beyond measure, who nearly gave his life for our country in World War II. Among the greatest of the great generation.”
