Bob Dole back in Walter Reed hospital
Among the VIPs spotted on Capitol Hill on Wednesday: Dan Quayle, Frank Murkowski and Elizabeth Dole, who hung out with Kansas Sens. Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts. Not in attendance: Bob Dole, who we've learned was recently re-admitted to Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
The former Senate majority leader and 1996 presidential candidate, 87, spent most of 2010 at the hospital: He entered in February for a knee replacement, had a second knee surgery, then was sidelined by three bouts of pneumonia. President Obama dropped in to visit in September; Dole was finally allowed to go home in November and spent the holidays at his apartment in the Watergate. Now he's back in for what sources say is a minor tuneup; a spokesman for Dole did not return calls for comment.
