    Dole was always a conservative Republican.  And he was known for a sharp tongue that could cut pretty deep (he was hired to be Ford's hatchetman VP nominee during the '76 campaign, famously referring to "Democrat Wars").

    But he was also a practical politician, who actually had a goal of serving the people of his country, and making things better.  And being a conservative in the 70s, 80s & 90s meant something different than it does now.
