Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call Dole salutes the casket of Inouye as the late senator’s body lies in state in the Capitol Rotunda. Dole was assisted to the casket, saying, “I wouldn’t want Danny to see me in a wheelchair.”
Struggling to stand and overcome with emotion, Dole shook and wiped away a tear.
He could have come forward in his wheelchair, but he opted to stand.
“I wouldn’t want Danny to see me in a wheelchair,” he said.
