Bob Dole, the last major presidential candidate from the World War II generation nominated by his party (the Republicans) for the presidency, has been quite critical of the Republican party as a whole in a recent interview, referring to it as “an extreme group on the right.”
Dole takes particular exception to Ted Cruz, the GOP presidential candidate who mocked Bob Dole's own presidential campaign of 1996. “Cruz is so extreme, he’s not a traditional conservative” Dole said of Cruz.
Perhaps also surprising, Dole paid President Obama quite the compliment, suggesting that he is "a very good man."
Interesting stuff. Here are two links if you wish to read more:
