n Wednesday, Congress awarded its highest civilian honor, the Congressional Gold Medal, to Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar. Suu Kyi was hailed by both Democrats and Republicans for spending her life fighting for democratic rights in her country, which only recently launched a series of wide-ranging reforms that have thawed relations between the U.S. and Myanmar. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former First Lady Laura Bush attended the ceremony, and Suu Kyi is scheduled to meet with President Obama later on Wednesday evening.
