Bob Dole, the former Senator and Republican presidential candidate in 1996, paid his respects to former President George H.W. Bush at the Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday.
In a stirring tribute, Dole — who became the standard bearer for the Republican party soon after Bush left office — was helped to his feet by an aide. The 95-year-old former senator then saluted Bush’s casket, as the crowd gathered in the Capitol stayed completely silent.
