Bob Dole played pundit (and potential candidate!) this morning, following up on this report by floating David Petraeus for President.

GEORGE: "Tell me about Petraeus for President?"

DOLE: "Well it seemed like a good idea at the time." [laughter] "But, I don’t know him, I haven’t met him, I don’t know him, don’t know his politics, so he may be in the other the party… but he always impressed me by being very candid with the American people, laying it all out there. Kind of like an Eisenhower. He may not be verse in all the kind of things we do in Congress and in the Administration, but he’s a quick study.

GEORGE: "So would you like to see him on the ticket for the Republicans?"

DOLE: "Sure why not, maybe I can run with him."
