The case for Ted Cruz

Andrew Klaven:
What's the Matter with Ted Cruz?

Am I missing something about Ted Cruz? The Texas senator seems to me to be the one true conservative left in the presidential race, and the most true conservative who was ever in it. Graduated cum laude from Princeton, magna cum laude from Harvard. "Off the charts brilliant," said his liberal professor Alan Dershowitz. The first Hispanic solicitor general of Texas. Authored more than 80 Supreme Court briefs and made more than 40 oral SCOTUS arguments. Won important victories on gun rights, the Pledge of Allegiance, the right to display the Ten Commandments. Sponsored close to a hundred bills during his time in the Senate.
...
I've listened to all the attacks on Cruz and they worry me. But whenever I do objective, honest research, it seems like there's nothing there.
...
He clearly has a superior intellect.  While he is sometimes impatient with his colleagues I do not find that as off-putting as they do.  They need to get over it.  They claim to support the same policies, and most of their differences were tactical.  If Cruz wins, they would win support for the very thing they say they are for.
