Dole still bringing people together

Among the many "happy 90th birthday" wishes Monday for Bob Dole is a video prepared by the Bipartisan Policy Center, which Dole co-founded. It features a who's who of politicians and journalists offering their appreciation to the former Senate majority leader from Kansas. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., thanks Dole for all he's done for our country and for veterans, while House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., says that Dole has been and remains "a consummate public leader." Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., thanks Dole "for being the role model to all of us." Former Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe notes: "Once again, you have proven that you're the only person who has the ability to bring Republicans and Democrats together." Dole's birthday has even prompted its own hashtag on Twitter, #Dole90.
