Washington (CNN)Oil tycoon and conservative mega-donor Charles Koch had kind words for both Bill and Hillary Clinton in an interview Sunday, saying there was an outside chance he could support her in November.

"We would have to believe her actions would be quite different than her rhetoric. Let me put it that way," he said on ABC's "This Week" Sunday. "But on some of the Republican candidates we would -- before we could support them, we'd have to believe their actions will be quite different than the rhetoric we've heard so far."
Earlier in the interview, Koch said Bill Clinton was better than George W. Bush on issues of economic growth and government spending but did not offer a full-throated endorsement of either Clinton.

I am dumbfounded! I don't even know what to think of that.

Yes, the Clinton's are on center-left (maybe even center, center, left), but who would have thought that would be acceptable to the Koch's? Then again, they are smart guys and realize neither Cruz nor Trump are capable of governing.

I guess when its fourth and long deep in your territory, your best play is to punt.
