When Bob Dole ran for president in 1996, he famously referred to himself in third person all the time, apparently so you wouldn't forget the name of the guy standing up there on the podium, running for president. Bob Dole cares about working Americans. Bob Dole will stand up for your interests. Bob Dole's not the kind of guy who quits when the chips are down.
