RIP Bob Dole.
Senator Dole was a great man. The height of his political career was before I was aware of politics, so didn’t know much about him at the time.

I did meet him once in person — it was a nice sunny day, and he was just sitting in a comfy chair on the Mall by the WWII memorial, chatting with people who stopped by. He happily let our baby sit on his lap to take a picture, asked the baby’s name, said some nice things.
That must have been what, five or six years ago? So he must have been 93? And he was sharp, coherent, and very pleasant. Just sitting, chatting, enjoying a glorious sunny day and being nice to people.
