Bob Dole finally out of hospital

Former Sen. Bob Dole has been recuperating at home in Washington, D.C., after nearly a year in Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

The 87-year-old Dole told The Topeka Capital-Journal in a telephone conversation Friday that he’s also looking forward to a return visit to Kansas.

Dole entered Walter Reed 10 months ago for knee surgery, but his stay was extended because he contracted pneumonia three times. He was released from Walter Reed a week ago.

Dole said he voted this year, as usual, by long distance through his hometown of Russell in western Kansas. He said he saw the strong move in the country toward Republican candidates coming and that it will be interesting to see what happens next.

He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1968.

He retired in 1996 to run for president against Democrat Bill Clinton.

"Dole said he voted this year, as usual, by long distance through his hometown of Russell in western Kansas."

Kobach won't allow that to happen again, will he?

Wow, thanks for the information oneye. I had no idea until I read your concise, fact-filled, cutting-edge report that the entire VA system cared for no other veterans other than Bob Dole for the past 11 months.

Mr. Dole has always cared for soldiers, even on the day while leading his troops when his arm was shattered by a German machinegun bullet. Not sure that he supports as much as you and the other magnetic ribbon displayers though. However, thanks again for keeping us all informed with your knowledge.
