    but he was the last Republican candidate for president that I at least respected and felt as though he wouldn't destroy the country if he got into office.

    He was distressingly reactionary in his politics, but a good and decent man who didn't view working with the opposition as the Great and Unforgivable Sin.

    Would that his successors shared his viewpoint.

      supposedly he was a good and decent man and very likeable in person, and the far right things he said were only because he believed in party discipline and was trying to help his party win.

      but as president the likelihood that he would have governed as a moderate was very great.  I can't say that about any R candidate who has run since Dole.

      and I agree with what LSophia said, BobDole was the last R candidate for President that I was not afraid would completely destroy the country if he got into office.

      Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
