Can Marco Rubio Out-Hawk Hillary Clinton?

The terrorist attack in Paris, and the increasingly deadly and complicated conflict in Syria (made even more complex by the recent shooting down of a Russian plane by the Turkish military after that plane flew into Turkish airspace) has led many observers to note that Republican primary voters are now looking for candidates who they think can best address these new security related challenges. This is another way of saying that, yet again, the GOP leadership is hoping, perhaps even anticipating, that the voters will move away from erratic, outsider frontrunners like Donald Trump and Ben Carson.
