B Esquire magazine thinks Bush and Dole would make a good Republican presidential ticket - George Bush and Elizabeth Dole, that is.

The magazine named Mrs. Dole its Woman of the Year in its August issue and endorsed her for the vice president's office.

Esquire said Mrs. Dole was selected because she "looks soft but plays tough . . . was Queen of the May at Duke (University), but also Phi Beta Kappa . . . is utterly open about her ambition, but tucks all the rest of herself away."
