Charles Krauthammer discussed tonight on "The Kelly File" why he thinks potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush is finally ready to break his silence.

After not speaking publicly for a few weeks, Bush is scheduled to give the commencement speech at Liberty University tomorrow.

Krauthammer told Megyn Kelly that Bush might feel that he needs to make some news and that he needs to be seen.

He noted that Bush is the one who "jump started the whole race" by getting in "unofficially" a few months ago.

Krauthammer explained that he thinks Bush has a "long range strategy."

"When you've got $100 million, you can go a very long way," he said.

Krauthammer also shared what he thinks Bush's strengths and weaknesses are. 

"His strength is that he was a very successful governor, he knows his stuff, he's attractive," Krauthammer stated. "His weakness of course is his last name."

He added that there's a sense among the "true believers" that Bush is a "closet liberal" because of common core testing and immigration. 

"[Bush] knows that's where he's weak...with the core constituency and if he can explain it, I think he can do very well," Krauthammer said.
