Dole on a Roll

Hume, Brit
March 1993
National Review;3/29/1993, Vol. 45 Issue 6, p22
The article asserts that U.S. Senator Bob Dole is the most important Republican in 1993. His political party may control neither the White House nor Congress. But Dole is still a sufficiently feared legislative and political tactician that not even whippersnappers in the administration of President Bill Clinton wish to antagonize him unnecessarily. Meanwhile, Dole wants to keep debate focused on an economic program of Clinton. Dole commented that the program contained too much on taxes. The trouble is that he has repeatedly embraced higher taxes in the hope of reducing it. In addition, he is serious about the deficit.
