Rep. Emanuel Cleaver

"Fatherhood, based on what I've seen in my own father, is the ultimate sacrifice. You put everyone in your family before you. He will tell you, 'Look, at 92, I've had my life. The only reason I want to be alive now is in the event one of my children needs me,'' said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, pictured with his son and father. "For me, there's nothing better than being a father. Maybe the presidency comes in second, but there's nothing better than being a father."
