When you're 89 and just released from Walter Reed 6 days ago, you probably shouldn't go anywhere. But Dole is a fighter, with brain aneurysm surgery and prostate cancer in his past, along with a 10-month hospitalization for pneumonia in 2010. He also took German machine gun fire in WW II and later got 2 Purple Hearts and the Bronze Star. He knows he's now squarely in the shadow of the Reaper. He was there because this treaty was important to him. His wife Elizabeth wheeled him into the well area at the front of the Senate. Kerry and McCain made impassioned speeches urging ratification.


All meaningless to the whackos and loons. Bob Dole is too moderate for today's Republican Party. But the whackos would call him a liberal.
