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.
