Rep. Charles Rangel (New York)

"Mandela spent his entire life fighting and suffering for what was right, and he emerged from his battles with grace and good-humor, not anger or bitterness. He is my personal hero and I will never forget how humbled I felt when I first met him. Ever since that day, I have thought to myself: 'God spent a lot of time making Nelson Mandela.'"
