2016 US Presidential Election Pt. II

I'll say this about Kasich...as a progressive in Ohio, I didn't vote for the guy for governor and I obviously can't stand his politics, but he did do one thing that has had a legitimate, tangible, positive effect on my life, and that is that he allowed the medicaid expansion to happen here, to the extreme ire of the Republican state congress, and that's been my health coverage for the last year and a half. So I'm appreciative of his having done that when a number of other republican governors didn't.

I'm surprised by the talk of Romney potentially entering the field. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that - on both sides of US politics - you're basically afforded only the one shot. Get the nomination and blow the election and you're not going to be seriously entertained for a second spin (in contrast to Commonwealth parliamentary systems where some party leaders have led in opposition for over a decade).

I immediately thought to mention Richard Nixon but of course things have changed in the last 45 years.

I think it's partially the parties not wanting to nominate a "loser" again, and partially people not wanting to put themselves through the stress and costs of more than one campaign.
