Sen. Tim Kaine's boycott of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress last March and his pro-Iran nuclear deal politics will be a "mark against" Hillary Clinton's vice presidential pick, according to Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz.

In an interview Sunday on Breitbart's Aaron Klein Investigation Radio, Dershowitz, nevertheless, asserted the Democrats' Clinton-Kaine ticket is "far better for America and for Israel" then the Donald Trump and Mike Pence GOP ticket.

"I've never ever seen the perfect candidate when it comes to Israel or the United States or anything else," Dershowitz said, Breitbart reports.

"I vote for the candidate who I think is most likely to be good for America; to be good for world peace," adding that one of the factors he considers for his support of White House candidates is "support for our allies, especially Israel."

"And on that factor I was not particularly enthusiastic about any person who didn't go and listen to the speech by Netanyahu . . . whether it was Sen. Franken, Sen. Warren or Sen. Kaine."

"So from my point of view, the failure to attend the speech by Benjamin Netanyahu is a mark against."

He also criticized the Virginia senator for helping to generate support in the upper chamber for the Obama administration's nuclear deal

"I'm concerned about anybody who supported the Iran deal," Dershowitz said. "Everybody who was considered to be vice president by Clinton, whether it be Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, all supported the Iran deal. And that is a factor. But it is certainly not the only factor in deciding my vote. Nor is it the only factor in deciding which candidate would be better for Israel."
