Senator Dole’s service in 第二次世界大战, 他对德怀特·艾森豪威尔总统的爱, (与他分享堪萨斯血统的人), 和他献身于公共服务的一生, 尽管遭受了严重的战争创伤, 使他成为了不起的人.
Senator Dole was a very effective leader of the Senate who was key to implementing the Contract with America. He was a major architect of the bipartisan effort to develop an effective food program for low-income Americans, and a staunch defender of American agriculture.
We often attended Senator Dole’s birthday parties in Washington. His parties brought together an amazing number of elected Republicans and Democrats, congressional staff, 说客, and journalists.
The Bob Dole fan club was wide and bipartisan. His extraordinary wife, 伊丽莎白, a Senator and Cabinet member in her own right, was always supportive and by his side.
Senator Dole was a unique American figure whose courage, dedication, endurance, and patriotism made him worthy of study and emulation.
Our hearts and prayers go out to Elizabeth and the Dole family. 我们, like millions of Americans, will miss Senator Dole and will cherish his memory.
