Kasich’s next act

We were musing in this space the other day about what John Kasich may do for a next act, now that his presidential run is kaput and he’s only got a couple more years as governor. Reader Darwin G. Brown sent this:

“In my opinion, Gov. Kasich is the ideal running mate for Donald Trump — that ticket will carry Ohio in November! However, in the event that doesn’t happen, I would predict that Gov. Kasich ends up at The Ohio State University in some capacity (fund raiser, etc.). That would be a nice comfortable position for the next five years until he retires at age 68. Then Of course, he’ll write his book: ‘If Only The American People Knew … I would Have Been A Great President!’ or, ‘In Retrospect … Glad I Didn’t Win The Party’s Nomination For President in 2016!’”

Yes, there’s always the political tell-all book — hadn’t thought of that.
