It’s probably too late to save his hapless campaign. But I’m sure Jeb! was happy anyway to receive the endorsement Wednesday of former President Bob “Bob” Dole.
Oops. Sorry. As I now I remember, Dole is one of several establishment Republicans who failed to defeat a weak Democratic incumbent. In Dole’s case, Bill Clinton in 1996 — didn’t even make it close. Almost certainly Dole’s choice, the establishment Jeb!, if nominated, would join the growing list of “electable” Republicans who never made it to 1600.
