Presidential Medal of Freedom winners: reason #2,0983 for being glad I voted for Bush

Among the winners:

Henry Hyde. The Illinois Republican served for 32 years in the House, where he was known for his battles against abortion rights and his leading role in the impeachment of President Clinton. He was honored as a "powerful defender of life" and an advocate for strong national defense...

Oscar Elias Biscet. A human rights advocate and champion of freedoms in Cuba, Biscet is a political prisoner in Cuba who is being recognized for his fight against tyranny and oppression.

(Which includes abortion, although you've got to google a bit to read this mentioned. To save time, go here. H/T to Cardinal O'Malley, among others.)
