Quin, I like John Kasich too. Your post gives me a launching point to tell my favorite Kasich story, which I think of whenever I see him hosting “The Heartland.” I had a photo-op with him in Cleveland in 1998 — I think the occasion was the Cuyahoga County Lincoln Day Dinner, but I could be mistaken. We were shaking hands before the picture was snapped and he asked me where I was from. I told him I went to college in his congressional district but was originally from the Boston area. “Boston?” he replied incredulously. “That’s a kick-ass city. Why would you ever leave there?” Even for the Heartland.
