Why Bob Dole endorsed Romney: He 'looks like a president

In December former presidential candidate Bob Dole endorsed Mitt Romney. At the time Dole said Romney would "succeed in turning this country around." A new profile of him in GQ has more on his endorsement thought process:

"Romney came to my office," Dole says, "we had a good meeting, and I'm not a Gingrich fan, so..." He famously loathed Gingrich: "He's just difficult to work with. It's either Newt's way or the highway. He's got a lot of ideas. Some of them are good; not many. So it looked to me like it would be either Romney or Newt for the nomination, but just on its own, I thought he—well, I'll say this: Romney looks like a president."
