Add yet another possible Republican presidential candidate into the 2016 mix: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told The Weekly Standard that he may run on a platform based around a staunchly hawkish foreign policy.

"If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody's out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments," Graham told the magazine.

Graham is widely expected to easily win reelection in his deeply Republican home state.
