The Republicans have a great opportunity to win the White House in 2016. There are three key candidates running, John Kasich, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. One of these candidates absolutely needs to be on the ticket with one of the other two.
The republicans need to win two key states in order to defeat Hillary Clinton (or whomever the democrats nominate)
They need Ohio and Florida. Without winning both states they lose! Reagan, Bush Sr., and W all won both Ohio and Florida. Neither McCain or Romney could do it.
Therefore, a smart ticket would include Ohio Governor John Kasich along with either Jeb Bush (former Gov. of Fla.) or Marco Rubio (Sen from Fla,). It matters not to me if Kasich is at the top or bottom of the ticket, nor does it matter if Rubio or Bush are on the ticket as long as one of them makes it.
There you have it, a sure fire win for the republicans. But will they take it, or will they once again snatch defeat from the mouth of victory?
