(8/7/16 update: Temporarily re-featuring this post, as John Kasich has now confirmed the New York Times story linked below.)...(Previously written, 7/20/16:)
....from a Trump presidency?
A New York Times Magazine article describes how Kasich was -- at one time -- viewed by some in the Trump campaign as "the perfect (Vice-President) choice". Off-site link to the story follows, new window opens, no affiliation:
....He (reportedly) declined Donald Trump Jr.'s offer to be "....the most powerful vice president in history...."
Kasich reportedly would have been "...in charge of both domestic and foreign policy".
(More to come here about this story.....E.g., Why might Kasich have turned down such an opportunity? A guess: Maybe he didn't believe the proposed power-sharing arrangement would actually exist (or develop) in such a manner. Or would quickly unravel..)
>>>Trump-Kasich might have been tough(er) for Hillary to defeat. Kasich reportedly polled well (head-to-head) versus H. Clinton earlier in 2016.
(Related note: Some question how much a V.P. choice really matters.)
Mike Pence? Not governor of a major 'battleground' state, for starters.....
Oh BTW: In the "powerful" de facto Kasich regime, what would 'President' Donald Trump have been in charge of??
....(Reportedly:) "Making America great again."
