The “old guard” went with an old, Bob Dole-esque candidate because it was “his turn.” McCain was old like Dole, a bad candidate like Dole, represented a “new right” wing of the party like Dole, ran a bad campaign like Dole....so was it really any surprise the election ended in a Dole-like result?

No more Bob Doles or John McCains as the party’s nominees, please.

Dole also had a last minute ‘twist’ by picking Kemp for VP and they weren’t coordinated on the issues. Same with McCain and Palin and the campaign was awkward as a result.
