My Encounter With Bob Dole

In 1996 at lunchtime, I jogged from my IT job at UPS to the Morristown Green, to attend a lunchtime rally for Presidential Candidate Bob Dole. (That was back when Republicans thought they had a chance to actually win New Jersey’s electoral votes.)

I shook Bob Dole’s left hand and said, “On to victory!”

When I got back to the office a colleague said: ” Don’t wash that hand!”

Well, Bob Dole didn’t go on to victory that year even though he did come closer to Bill Clinton than expected.
