Bob Dole

  • Former Senate Majority Leader
  • American Political Leader
  • Leadership Speaker

Recognized as one of the most prominent political figures of our time with a distinguished record of service, political speaker Bob Dole continues to make a difference in the lives of the American people. Known for his unconventional candor and prairie wit, Senator Bob Dole is a unique individual, especially in Washington.

As a renowned political commentator, a frequent guest on late night talk shows, star of two Super Bowl commercials and best-selling author, Bob Dole is part of the American landscape. Senator Dole's best-selling World War II memoir, One Soldier's Story, chronicles his harrowing experience on and off the battlefield and the lessons learned through his struggle to survive. One Soldier's Story is a tribute to those who defended liberty in its darkest hour and his gift to future generations, a destined-to-be classic about overcoming adversity and making the most out of life.

As chairman of the National World War II Memorial, Senator Bob Dole led the nation in honoring the heroes of his generation and helped enshrine their legacy of sacrifice for freedom.

Following the attacks of September 11, Bob Dole joined forces with former rival President Bill Clinton to serve as co-chair of the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund, assisting the educational needs of the families of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Flight 93. In January 2003, he was appointed Honorary Co-Chair of the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation, part of President Bush's USA Freedom Corps.

As the Republican presidential nominee in 1996, Senator Bob Dole offered himself to Americans as an honorable leader. His candidacy for the White House cemented his reputation as an honest, respected statesman who will long be considered one of the most powerful senators and brilliant legislators of our times. In 1997, Bob Dole was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom as a tribute to his character and contributions to the nation.

Ronald Reagan said of Bob Dole as a senate majority leader, "His title of leader is not just a job title, it's a description of the man." President Bush called Senator Dole "a great Republican leader, as great as any in the past." Bob Dole is one of only 19 Americans to serve as Senate majority leader, and his first stint in that position in the mid-1980's won praise nationwide. According to Congressional Quarterly, Senator Bob Dole "proved a point that badly needed proving at the time: the senate could be led."

The American public started seeing the lighter, entertaining side of Senator Dole's legendary sense of humor with his post-election appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show, Late Night with Conan O'Brien and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Bob Dole is also the author of two best-selling books on political humor - Great Presidential Wit, I Wish I Was in the Book and Great Political Wit, Laughing (Almost) All the Way to the White House.

Bob Dole was raised on the plains of western Kansas. This tough, common-sense conservative from America's heartland accumulated political achievements second to none: in addition to becoming the Senate majority leader and candidate for president, he also served as chairman of the powerful Senate Finance Committee, his party's nominee for vice president, a member of the House of Representatives, and chairman of the Republican Party. Senator Bob Dole earned national acclaim for his leadership on behalf of the disadvantaged and Americans with disabilities, and for his mastery of foreign affairs.

During the Second World War, Bob Dole was a platoon leader in the legendary Tenth Mountain Division in Italy. In 1945, he was gravely wounded on the battlefield and was twice decorated for heroic achievement. Senator Dole's decorations include two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Cluster. He is married to The Honorable Elizabeth Hanford Dole, the senator from North Carolina.

Senator Bob Dole's effectiveness as a consensus-builder and his commitment to deficit reduction and economic growth have earned him the admiration of Republicans, Independents and Democrats alike. On issue after issue, Senator Dole is a statesman who has made his mark.
