Default Republican Kasich, Democrat Hickenlooper mull joint White House run

Quote:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Ohio’s Republican governor, John Kasich, and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, have discussed the idea of a joint run for the White House in 2020, Axios and CNN reported on Friday.
Quote:
Citing an unidentified source, CNN said the discussions were not at an organizational level for a bid, which would challenge Republican President Donald Trump’s expected re-election campaign and complicate Democratic efforts to regain the White House.
Quote:
“What they are trying to show the country is that honorable people can disagree, but you can still problem solve together,” it quoted the source as saying.
Quote:
Kasich, who was among more than a dozen Republican candidates to be defeated by Trump in last year’s presidential primary campaign, would top the ticket, according to CNN and Axios online news outlet.
Quote:
Kasich adviser John Weaver told Reuters the two governors “have an outstanding working relationship” and had “done a great job” showing how two people from different parties can work together.
Quote:
“That model can work on other issues,” said Weaver, who did not say the reports were inaccurate.

I'd love to see a ticket like this. I don't know Hickenlooper. Would have to research before I would say this combination would be any good, but like the idea.

your post reflects my exact sentiment. Never heard of looper (hey he's gonna get the nickname-I'm just forward thinking ) but I like kasich. and it would be interesting to experience an election like this.

I am thinking it could be a good idea, if both parties would honor the deal to work together. But I fear of Congress is majority for one party the other party would suffer.

the point of a dual administration would be to ease that problem; whether it would work or not remains to be seen.
