Bob Dole using everything he had, stood up from his wheel chair and gave George Bush a final salute. As a Veteran, As a American, if this doesnít make your lip quiver, then I donít know what will. We now stand on the shoulders of Giants.

Amazing.

Especially when his assistant's hand was in the way, preventing him from saluting.

When people get into their 90's and can't even walk is it generally arthritis that hobbles them?
