This is the best source that’s easy to find in what Kasich’s positions were for 2000 and likely would be for 2004.He ain’t that bad, right?
Davis is viable because of federal intervention in the energy markets and Enron scandal. He was notably ambitious and some would say ruthless in his climb to Governor. The question of running after three Democratic terms is a tricky one though. Being 62 in 2004 versus 66 in 2008 maybe makes a difference. And if a person is genuinely interested, not hard for a convincing consultant or operator to twist a person towards running.Kasich should be in the driver's seat for the general.
I'm curious what Davis would have done OTL if there was no recall. Running for president makes as much sense as anything else.
