Krauthammer: Rubio Has Chance to Be ‘Kennedyesque’

On Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, columnist Charles Krauthammer argued that Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has a chance “to be the sort of Kennedyesque” candidate and that his foreign policy experience makes him “the best” to speak on the issues that the election will hinge “a lot” on.

“I think Rubio is the one — again, if the theme is new and old, I think he’s got a chance to be the sort of Kennedyesque one, a lot of energy, youth, and especially because foreign affairs have become a very important issue in the last couple of years that we should have an election that hinges a lot on that. But I think the disgust with — the way our position is in the world is going to lead to who can speak on those issues, Rubio, I think is the best” he stated.

Krauthammer bet $35 on Rubio, $30 on Jeb Bush, $25 on Scott Walker, and $5 on Ted Cruz in the “candidate casino” where “Special Report’s” panel puts 100 fictional dollars on candidates to win the nomination.

He added, ” I put $5 on Ted Cruz because anybody who raises $30 million in a week, deserves a fiver.”
