KA­SICH STRIKES A PRES­I­DEN­TIAL POSE

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Ohio Gov. John Ka­sich has all the hall­marks of some­one gear­ing up for a pres­i­den­tial run, his sec­ond bid for the White House. He has a splashy and sig­nif­i­cant book ar­riv­ing Tues­day ti­tled “Two Paths: Amer­ica Di­vided or United.” The au­thor has al­ready de­clared “To­gether, united, we can re­claim the Amer­ica we love and hold so dear,” and prom­ises to de­liver a “pow­er­ful mes­sage of to­geth­er­ness, a clar­ion call to rea­son and pur­pose and a clear path to­ward a more promis­ing to­mor­row.”

That surely sounds like a catchy cam­paign phrase.

On Mon­day, Mr. Ka­sich could ex­pand on his idea dur­ing a CNN ap­pear­ance. He ap­pears on a live town hall com­plete with stu­dio au­di­ence with prime-time host An­der­son Cooper. The net­work says Mr. Ka­sich will weigh in on pres­i­dent Trump’s 100 days and his “hopes for the fu­ture.”

His hopes for the fu­ture may not in­clude es­pous­ing a rigid loy­alty to one po­lit­i­cal party, how­ever.

“I think po­lit­i­cal par­ties are on their way out, es­sen­tially,” Mr. Ka­sich told CBS News in an in­ter­view Sun­day. “I think peo­ple care less about party. They want ac­tion and things done.”
