Elizabeth Hanford Dole : speaking from the heart by Molly Meijer Wertheimer( )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After a career in government service spanning six presidents, from Lyndon B. Johnson to George H.W. Bush, Elizabeth Hanford Dole became widely recognized as a leading Republican politician in her own right after her 1996 speech at the GOP convention. In 1999 she spent six months campaigning for president before dropping out of the race due to a lack of adequate funds, and in 2002 she was elected U.S. senator from North Carolina. In this biography of Dole, the authors show how she has been able to advance the causes she cares about, as well as her political career, through her consummate skills as a public speaker."--Jacket

Part 3. Should she have stood by his side or socked him in the jaw? That's a question many answered with knee-jerk reactions when they watched Silda Wall Spitzer stand silently at Elliot Spitzer's side when he admitted to involvement in a prostitution scandal, and again when he announced his imminent resignation from the office of New York State Governor. Obviously, Wall Spitzer's decision was her own, but the question of how to deal with public scandal among political power couples seems to come up more and more often. So we called the Rutgers University Center for American Women and Politics to compare Wall Spitzer's approach with others. I spoke with the Center's director, Debbie Walsh, to talk about public reaction to Wall Spitzer's decision. Walsh says she was riveted, along with many others in the country, when Spitzer resigned
