Dole on Paul, Cruz, Rubio: They're not ready

(CNN) - Former Republican Sen. Bob Dole argued that some of the men among the younger generation of potential GOP presidential candidates aren't quite ready to take on the White House.

"A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, (Marco) Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy – Ted Cruz? All running for president now," he said in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "I don't think they've got enough experience yet."

Rubio: Presidential candidates should only run for one office at a time

(CNN) – Sen. Marco Rubio appeared to take a jab at Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday, saying candidates shouldn't run for the presidency while trying to hold onto their Senate seat.

"I think by and large, when you choose to do something as big as that, you’ve really got to be focused on that and not have an exit strategy,” the Florida Republican said on the Hugh Hewitt radio show.

Sunday chatter: Make Putin take notice

(CNN) - Russia’s escalation in Ukraine dominated the political talk shows Sunday morning.

It’s also the latest foreign policy challenge facing President Barack Obama, whose tenure has been plagued by international crises ranging from two wars, an unruly North Korea and uprisings in the Middle East.

Rubio: U.S. in a 'geopolitical battle for influence'

(CNN) - Sen. Marco Rubio said Tuesday the Defense Department's plan to reduce troop levels comes at a time when there's great unrest in parts of the world.

"In the middle of all of this, the U.S. announcing that we may have troop levels as a low as they've been since World War II. I think that's a pretty startling contrast in terms of where our priorities are and where the world's challenges look like," the Florida Republican told CNN's Wolf Blitzer.
