Alan Dershowitz Praises Former Student Ted Cruz's Intelligence
Was very libertarian, says the Harvard Law prof
Famed Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz ranks Sen. Ted Cruz among the school's smartest students, adding that the Canada-born Texan can run for president in 2016.
Cruz was a "terrific student," Dershowitz told The Daily Caller. "He was always very active in class, presenting a libertarian point of view. He didn't strike me as a social conservative, more of a libertarian."
"He had brilliant insights and he was clearly among the top students, as revealed by his class responses," Dershowitz added.
