  1. Bob and Elizabeth Dole are fine examples of what the leaders of the US 
    Congress ought to be – courageous, thoughtful and honest.  Senator Dole’s loyalty to Dr. Hampar Kelikian is legendary.  Elizabeth Dole was a strong voice for Armenia during her tenure in the US Senate.  I am pleased and proud that these two deserving Americans are being honored for being the moral conscience of our nation.
