Former Kansas Sen. and presidential hopeful Bob Dole is back in a Washington hospital. Dole, 87, is undergoing treatment at Walter Reed Army Medical Center for a fever that stems from a bout with pneumonia.

Dole came down with pneumonia after undergoing knee surgery last year.

He had already spent three days at Walter Reed last week and says he'll leave when "everything looks clear".

Dole was the 1996 Republican presidential candidate but lost to Bill Clinton.
