Thank You, Bob
by

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.

It’s Veterans Day, so we should take time to remember and, where possible, thank the likes of Bob Dole for their service and sacrifice for their country. Lieutenant Dole was grievously wounded in Italy toward the end of WWII and suffered greatly from his wounds. But he soldiered on to a long and successful life. He’s a great American and a genuinely nice man. I had the privilege of meeting him and shaking that left hand when I worked on Capitol Hill in the eighties. But while giving Dole his very considerable due, I think most readers will seek political advice elsewhere.
