  •  Bob Dole was pretty much an Eisenhower Republican (10+ / 0-)

    until he had to embrace the far right to run for president and to support George W Bush's run.  

    Something must happen to Republicans when they get older -- lose all sense of purpose and perspective, like McCain and Dole both did.

    In person, Bob Dole was a very genuine and interesting person. He was funny and he had a huge memory for names and places.  (I guess most successful politicians have to be somewhat like that.)  I knew him as a person -- when I first met him, he was about the age I am now -- before he ran off to be a right-wing crazy running for president.

    But this example shows that Bob Dole is still grounded a bit in reality:  He supports a UN treaty for heaven's sake!   That's pretty non-tea bagger these days.
