    “Bob Dole’s whole purpose of running wasn’t to win the election, it was to keep Perot from running…”

    Why would Bill Clinton “cut a deal” with a candidate that obviously and overwhelmingly steal votes from the GOP? Why would Bob Dole want to not win an election? The Tea Party… Um, I mean, the Perotists, were primarily conservative and white. Now is the worse time for the GOP for another Perot-style movement to take hold. They are also extremely embarrassing to a lot of conservatives.

    The 1996 election…
    How true is it…that Bill Clinton and Bob Dole cut a deal to keep Ross Perot from joining the debates, like he did in 1992..so Bob Dole’s whole purpose of running wasn’t to win the election, it was to keep Ross Perot from running…
    Even though in 1992 Ross Perot recieved 1 out of every 5 votes
