Is this the concensus of the Republican Party? "Speaking as a Republican, I want my party to let more people in," said the former U.S. senator and presidential candidate. "We don't have to agree with everybody. We ought to have diversity, not conformity. That's what America is all about.”  Sen. Bob Dole

"As chairman of the Republican party, he appointed the first woman in history to serve as deputy chairman. As Senate Republican Leader, he appointed the first woman in history to serve as Secretary of  the Senate - the chief administrative officer of the Senate. He was also the first Senate Leader in history - Republican or Democrat - to have a woman as chief of staff.

In his leadership office, his top advisers on policy issues like health care, taxes, the environment and foreign policy are all women. And at the Dole for President campaign, his finance director and his political director are just two of the many women who play leadership roles."  (Elizabeth Dole about her husband, Bob Dole.)

Dole: Hollywood Should Help Veterans  By TOM RAUM
 Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former presidential candidate
Bob Dole suggested Friday that the nation's film industry could do more to help veterans. ``They've made a lot of money making World War II movies,'' he told a Senate hearing. ``So far, they've kept it.'' Dole softened his testimony to the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee to single out actor Tom Hanks for praise. Hanks, who played a starring role in the 1998 hit movie ``Saving Private Ryan,'' has been helpful in raising funds for a $100 million World War II memorial to be built in the nation's
capital, Dole said.

Dole Might Take Act on the Road PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Feb. 3.

Bob Dole a funny guy? You be the judge, based on a speech he made Tuesday before an arts society.Of his purchase of the Watergate apartment where Monica Lewinsky once lived: ``For two years I lived next door to Monica. I didn't know it at the time. Now we're going to buy that place, and I'll be giving tours on weekends.''
On a possible run for president by his wife, Elizabeth: ``If she decides to do it, she'll be the candidate and I'll do what she's done for me the past two times - stand there smiling while she makes the same speech over and over and over.''


What makes it easy for voters to overlook Dole's pro-women record is his leadership of the Republicans' efforts to cut taxes and reduce the size and role of government. Those who believe in a welfare/entitlement state and trying to solve most problems by throwing federal tax dollars at them can spin Republican positions into a seeming lack of compassion and favoritism toward the rich.
        Most of the people on welfare are women. Women have traditionally been the victims of discrimination in the job market. Women are most likely to be left as single parents or displaced homemakers or elderly widows with a case for government help and the conviction that Democrats will be most likely to provide it. Much of the feminist movement has been aligned with Democrats and the political left.

During the 1996 campaign, however, Dole herself became a favoriteamong many members of the Republican Party. copyright © 1998 Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc.

There was much less pressure, fewer people standing in line to see him, he could wear casual sports clothes. His first appointment was at 9 a.m. with his wife, Elizabeth.
     "Okay, Bob," she had said several days before, "let's set aside a few quiet hours and let's just look at some of this in more detail." They had been married 19 years, and she wanted to discuss, systematically and at length, the possibility that he was going to run for president a third ti
