Fellow World War II soldiers. Rivals for a presidential nomination. Two men who deeply respected each other. Two men who, in their time, were bigger badasses than any democrat alive today. 95 year old Bob Dole came to pay his final respects to his friend and compatriot, George H.W. Bush. When Dole passes there will be no one left to bury him. He has no peer. Say what you will about his politics, he’s always been his own man.
