Kevin McCarthy
If something happened along the route and you had to leave your children with Bob Dole or Bill Clinton, I think you would probably leave them with Bob Dole.

Steve Kornacki
When George W. Bush was president, his daddy was raising money for the Bush library. I thought that was fine. When Bob Dole was Majority Leader, Elizabeth Dole was the president of American Red Cross. I didn’t say anything.

Back then, this was something young folk did – you got your rent paid, a little bit of money to live on, and you loafed around, wrote songs, rehearsed and dreamed of playing Wembley Stadium.
John Niven
People are quick to say with their mouth full, ‘Well, the American farmer is on the dole.’ But a loaf of bread is two bucks when it could be 10 bucks. I know what it is with the government in my business. We would be all for not having government in our business, but we need a fair system.
Stephen Fincher
Even though I am Chairman of Dole Food Company, I do most of my own grocery shopping.
