*Although Republicans were officially in the minority in the Senate, little can be accomplished there without consulting Senator Dole. Regarded by many as brash and cutting, he was defeated in his bid for the Republican nomination for the Presidency by George Bush. Although both officially deny it, there is a great deal of talk about a "feud" that exists between the White House and Senator Dole. During the Gulf Crisis, Bob Dole has served as one of most vocal and active supporters of the President and his policies and Dole will continue to be the point man for the President as debate continues on U.S. policy in the Gulf.
