ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The body of former U.S. President George H.W.
Bush arrived on Monday at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, where mourners will pay tribute to the man who led the nation as the Cold War ended.
With hands on hearts, members of Bush's cabinet, lawmakers and Supreme Court justices honored the 41st president as his flag-draped casket entered the Capitol Rotunda.
The Bush family, led by son and former President George W.
Bush, accompanied the patriarch's body on the flight aboard Air Force One from Texas to Joint Base Andrews outside Washington, and then on a final trip down Pennsylvania Avenue to the steps of the Capitol.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the first official to speak in the Rotunda, described George H.W.
Bush as a "humble servant" and "a principled leader." "He kept us flying high and challenged us to fly higher still, and he did it with modesty and kindness that would've been surprising in someone one-tenth as tough and accomplished as he was," McConnell said.
