THE KASICH AND ROMNEY FACTOR
An interesting alliance: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, former presidential hopeful. The man who played the Terminator, in fact, has already endorsed Mr. Kasich for the next White House derby.
“He should run in 2020. Kasich is an extraordinary guy. He’s a man of substance. He’s worked in Washington, he’s worked in local government, he’s worked in statewide government. He has the experience. He can see things. He has vision,” Mr. Schwarzenegger told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday.
Mr. Kasich has all the traits of a guy pining to get back in the arena. He still has an active campaign site. The governor also has a new book titled “Two Paths: America Divided or United,” which arrives April 25. He intends to “reclaim the America we love and hold so dear,” and plans on delivering “a clarion call to reason and purpose and a clear path toward a more promising tomorrow.”
The first stop on Mr. Kasich’s book tour? New Hampshire, of course. There must be something in the air, though. According to a new report from McKay Coppins, a political analyst for Atlantic magazine, none other than Mitt Romney is actively exploring a return to national politics, this time via a U.S. Senate seat in Utah.
