Its a frozen February evening in West Virginia, and John Kasich has gotten sidetracked yet again. For two full days, Kasich, the Republican governor of Ohio, has been wooing local legislators and jousting with the press as he tours Columbia, S.C., and Charleston, W.Va., in support of his longtime hobbyhorse: a federal balanced-budget amendment.
He has also been telling everyone who asks, including a growing gaggle of national reporters (CNNs Gloria Borger, Bloombergs Dave Weigel) that he is thinking about running for president in 2016. Im taking no options off the table in terms of my future, Kasich, 62, declared in South Carolina a pivotal early-primary state, and the first of many he plans to visit. (New Hampshire is next on March 24.) I hope to do a significant amount of traveling.

Of course Yahoo News would suggest something so patently ridiculous.
No .... and not just plain ‘no’, but hell no.
He’s probably even pointless as a VP candidate.
would he help or hurt w/ ohio?

How’s he going to deal with the very unpopular Obamacare when he accepted subsidies for it for Ohio?
No. Gave in right away on medicaid/obamacare.
I grew up with John and in real life he’s a nice guy, but I wouldn’t vote for him as president. For the most part he’s another liberal Republican and that’s what we don’t need.
No, Yahoo. Cruz is the secret weapon. Stick to emoticons. Next, please.
Come on America! We can elect a true conservative who really loves the American people including white ones, without giving lip service to Mexican nationalist who broke into the US illegally!
Simple answer is NOOOOOOOO
I stand with Ted
It seems the MSM meme is now “Anybody but Cruz”...that is a really good place to be in right now for Cruz.
Kasich be anyone’s secret weapon?! AHahahaha, that’s a laugh!
I think the idea that a VP helps with geography is no longer true. Ideology has been nationalized.
Perhaps as a monkey wrench candidate?
Yahoo, Newsweek & The Daily Beast ...hahahahaha
The Scott Walker model crushing the unions, opposing immigration reform, rejecting Medicaid money, austerity above all else will always appeal to the GOP base. But it may be too 2010 for 2016: a hard-right roadmap that would scare off swing voters and prove impossible for any president to implement.
Then theres Kasich.
You dont just up and decide to run for President..Unless he’s been pulling together a campaign team and building an organization totally on the QT, Kasich’s a dollar short and day late.
Jeb is sucking up all the GOPe oxygen. And money. And top tier campaign staff. Cruz and Walker are lining up their own teams. Rand Paul has the keys to his dad’s fanboys. Look at the issues Fred Thompson had with his late start in 08. And unlike today that was a year where a lot of operatives wanted someone else, anyone else, to run and hire them.
Why don’t they write an article about democrats secret weapon?
