Bob Dole released from hospital: Reunited with his dogs and ready for a cocktail
Tom Williams/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Former Senate majority leader Bob Dole announced on Thursday he had returned home following a brief hospitalization — and that he was ready for a cocktail.
A cosmopolitan to be precise.
“Happy to be home,” he tweeted. “Cheers to all the well wishers, care givers and staff at Walter Reed for taking good care of me. #cosmotime”
