This week, Congress dedicates a new bust of Winston Churchill in the U.S. Capitol's Statuary Hall. The sculpture is meant to honor the British statesman's legacy of determination and resolve. It's also a salute to Churchill's friendship with the United States — summed up in a oft-quoted line that Maine Sen. Angus King used during the recent congressional debt-ceiling debate. As King put it: "Winston Churchill once famously observed that Americans will always do the right thing, only after they have tried everything else."
