Dershowitz praises 'bright' Cruz

Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz called the freshman Texas Republican Ted Cruz "one of the sharpest students I had, in terms of analytic skills. I've had 10,000 students over my 50 years at Harvard...He has to qualify among the brightest."  Although some in his own party have accused him of grandstanding, Cruz deeply believes in what he is doing, Dershowtiz said.
