Elizabeth Dole's Legacy

NPR's Mary Ann Akers reports on Elizabeth Dole's decision to drop out of the race for the Presidency. Citing a lack of money, Dole said she could not compete with Republican front-runners George W. Bush and Steve Forbes. But Dole insists that her campaign for the White House was not a total failure. She says she leaves a legacy of getting women involved and invigorated in the political process.
