Like Dole

Bob Dole

Bob Dole

Win, win, win. That was Bob Dole’s mantra in the presidential election of 1996. Everyone knew that he was going to lose to Bill Clinton and he did. As a lifelong Republican, I voted for Dole anyway, and it was the last time I have voted Republican. Trump sounds a lot like Dole, but Dole was and is a respected politician; Trump is not.

If the 22nd amendment to the US Constitution did not exist, I think that Bill Clinton could have won in 2000, and I think that President Obama could be re-elected in 2016. Without the third term limit, Republicans would have little or no chance to win the presidency.
