Statement of James A. Baker, III, on the Death of Bob Dole

 “Bob Dole was a true American patriot who represented the very best of our country. From his combat service during World War II until his time at the highest levels in American political leadership, he spent his career trying to make our country the very best it could be. His unforgettable salute at the casket of President George H.W. Bush, a man with whom he had periodic heated exchanges, serves as reminder in today’s angry culture that rivals can still respect one another and find common ground. Susan and I will greatly miss Bob and we send his wife, Elizabeth, our love and prayers.”
