The first election I ever participated in, 1996, I cast my vote for Senator Dole for President. I found his personal story remarkable and inspiring.

God Speed Sir.

By all accounts I have seen, Dole served his country and was respected across the political spectrum. RIP.

Bob Dole represented the best in political behavior and will be missed by those who admire individuals of that standard. Obviously Trump is far below that standard.

For those who appreciated Senator Dole a few phrases come to mind; "Thank You for your lifetime of service." "Well Done Sir" and, of course, "RIP"

We need more Bob Doles in this country's leadership.

My aunt worked for Dole when he was governor of Kansas. I never met him but she was proud to have worked for him.

What alternate universe do you live in? You're always coming up with these "facts", that aren't. Bob Dole was never governor of Kansas.

Not a pretty picture for those of a particular political bent.

I'm worried that if I click that link, my Amazon recommendations will suddenly be nothing but paper shooting targets shaped like Barack Obama, surplus German WW2 army uniforms, and jumbo-size jars of peanut butter.

What I was told for decades is she worked in the governors office with Dole. That is exactly how she and our family said it.

So telling "alternate facts" runs in the family? A quick search shows that he never held any statewide office in Kansas. The closest was two years as a state rep.
