Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Former First Lady Laura Bush also joined congressional leaders to pay tribute to Aung San Suu Kyi who was first awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 2008, while she was under 15 years of house arrest in her native country. This day she was there in person to receive the honor. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
