Class: Bob Dole insists on standing to salute former Pres. George H.W. Bush — Video

While visiting former President George H.W. Bush’s casket, currently inside the Capitol Rotunda, former Senator and GOP presidential candidate Bob Dole insisted on being lifted out of his wheelchair so he could salute the former chief executive.

The 95-year-old Dole, by the way, is confined to a wheelchair.

Here’s video posted to Twitter by Axios:

Many were moved by Dole’s classy and respectful act:

Indeed.  Too bad some of that couldn’t be bottled and injected into some of those currently serving in office…

We agree.


Even if you disagreed with Dole, you have to admit that this was a classy move by a classy man.
