Memories of Charles Krauthammer From This Great Quip

I still miss dearly the great Charles Krauthammer, who died of cancer on June 21, 2018, almost one year ago.  

I wanted to share this memory of him - just one of his numerous great quips that he is known for,  from 2012.  This was about the Republican nominating process in which Mitt Romney prevailed as the GOP nominee.

Dr. Charles Krauthammer On The Nastiest Campaign Ever:  [from March 20, 2012]

On the Fox News Special Report panel segment on Monday night, Bret Baier asked the panel if this [GOP nomination battle] is the nastiest campaign ever? When he turned to my favorite panelist, Dr. Charles Krauthammer...

Dr. Krauthammer's serious look suddenly gave way into a sly smile [when you know you are about to hear one of his brilliant quips] and he said:  "I would say that would be Octavius and Marc Anthony.  There you lose and die.  Here you lose and go to K-street and become a lobbyist."

Now that is why I call him the brilliant Charles Krauthammer.
