In a short interview with ABC News, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) laid out just how little he thinks of Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, saying Hillary Clinton would "destroy" either of them if they become their party's nominee in 2016. For a hawk like King their isolationist talk is complete anathema.

PETER KING: I think she’s very strong on foreign policy, and I think that if we nominate somebody from our isolationist wing of the party, she’ll destroy them. We need somebody that can stand up to her.

Can you help us out?
