Speaking of triggering politics, another fringe guy is back in the news. Ohio Gov John Kasich. Just remember his boycott a year ago of the GOP convention, in Ohio.
Now he is back out pimping his book and criticizing Trump where possible His lectures are numerous to the GOP — who in case he hadn’t noticed did win the election, despite his persistent resistance.
So he keeps up appearances on MSM and CNN, always happy to give him plenty of airtime. Reports now from CNN say he is in talks, collaboration, with Colorado Gov Hickenlooper .– a name he has been dropping around for a year.
(CNN) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper have entertained the idea of forming a unity presidential ticket to run for the White House in 2020, a source involved the discussions tells CNN.
Under this scenario, Kasich, a Republican, and Hickenlooper, a Democrat, would run as independents with Kasich at the top of the ticket, said the source, who cautioned it has only been casually talked about. /….
Politics of “casual” convenience.
Kasich repeatedly denied plans on running in 2020. But since it is his favorite pass time, do you really think he can refuse? Why don’t all these GOP resistance join the resistance on the left? Who is kidding whom? Now he is flirting with running as an independent.
Exactly what is ohe ffering Hickenlooper? Certainly he is wasting no time, 7 months into Trump’s presidency. Kasich’s never-Trump campaign never ended. How about Joe Scarborough if Hickenlooper declines?
