Clinton, Dole pair up again on ‘Larry King’

Ex-prez puts brakes on talker rumors

President Clinton and his 1996 opponent, former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, have become TV’s real-life odd couple.

Post-9/11, the duo appeared together in a public service announcement plugging a special college fund for family members who lost loved ones in the terrorist attacks. In the spot, Dole and Clinton sat side by side, perched casually on a desk.

Earlier this week, the politicos teamed up again, this time on CNN’s “Larry King Live.”

During the gabber, Clinton and Dole announced that they’ve raised $105 million for the fund. Any victim’s spouse or child can qualify, regardless of whether or he or she is an American citizen.

The Clinton-Dole campaign drew contributions from corporations and more than 20,000 individuals.

During the chat with King, Clinton doused speculation that he is bidding to host his own TV show, at least for the immediate future, citing a busy travel and public service sked.

“I think I’ll leave that to you,” Clinton said. “You know, maybe sometime later in my life I’d like to do it. It would be intriguing to me because I like to talk to people.”

Clinton said he’d also like to have Dole come on “my show and tell me what I did wrong.”
