Cotton joined a panel that included liberal columnist Juan Williams and Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol. At the end of the segment, Kristol, who was chuckling at the time, said the GOP should go with a Marco Rubio and Tom Cotton presidential ticket in 2016.
While the comment may have been in good fun, it certainly shows that Cotton is a rising start within the Republican ranks.
Cotton was on the show to discuss President Obama's role in potentially halting automatic spending cuts before they take effect.
Cotton argued defense cuts shouldn't be an option and that overall tax reform was the solution. He added it'll likely take many months to negotiate.
