Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz are likely the strongest candidates against Hillary Clinton, the Democrats' expected presidential nominee, according to a Newsmax TV panel.

Appearing Thursday on "Newsmax Prime," political analyst Dick Morris said Rubio would be strongest, perhaps followed by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who currently is sinking in the polls. Front-runner Donald Trump likely would not do well, he said.

Clinton is riding high following her strong performance in the Benghazi hearings in late October, he said, but that could all be reversed with the announcement of an FBI probe of some of her statements.

Author Ed Klein noted that Bill Clinton himself told a group of friends at a recent dinner party that Rubio was his wife's biggest challenge: "Young, generational change, Hispanic and a sense that he represents the future whereas she represents the past."

Morris says the other front-runner, neurosurgeon Ben Carson will fade, and Trump may, too. The eventual contest, he said, will be Rubio and Cruz.

"It's a kind of clash of style against substance," Morris said earlier on "Newmax Now."

"Rubio is more charismatic, he's more attractive, he has a warmer television personality, he has a reputation for congeniality, and a Kennedy-esque appearance. On the other hand, Cruz has a distinct substantive advantage."

On "Newsmax Prime," the two also discussed the FBI case against Clinton, which Klein said is likely to turn part criminal, part political if enough evidence is found to turn it over to Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

"Obviously, Barack Obama is going to have a lot to say about that," Klein said. "On the one hand he doesn't want to see Hillary in the White House. He would like to see his own kind of candidate, Biden, Elizabeth Warren.

"On the other hand, if Hillary is indicted, there will be a convulsion in the political system. … It'll overwhelm the last several months of Obama's presidency, and in his view kind of make him leave the White House under a kind of cloud."
