66 years later, Biden honors Dole's World War II service

Washington (CNN) - There was a terrible rainstorm here on Tuesday morning, but NBC News anchorman and special correspondent Tom Brokaw said he woke up knowing there was just no way that an event on the National Mall honoring a certain World War II veteran would be cancelled.

"Don't worry about it, God wouldn't dare rain on Bob Dole's parade," Brokaw quipped at the beginning of a ceremony honoring the former Republican Senator and presidential nominee's efforts to create the National World War II Memorial.

    It's too bad they don't make them like Bob Dole anymore. A real hero and a respected politician. The folks in the GOP today could learn a few things from this gentleman. God Bless you Sen. Dole.
