It is getting to be awfully late, and John Kasich is still here.
At first it seemed fine. Florida was fun. Even Ohio was fun. Everyone running around, debating, placing ads everywhere, fighting for votes. But when Donald Trump said that he was going to take the campaign back toward his place (New York) -- maybe stopping by Wisconsin on the way, if people had delegates and wanted to join him -- Marco Rubio took the hint and made a tactful exit.
Now the popcorn is gone, the movie is over, Ted Cruz is staring at his watch on one end of the couch, Trump is staring at his watch on the other end -- and Kasich is still here, smiling contentedly with his feet propped up on the coffee table.
Nothing that has been tried on him has worked. Articles have been handed to him with headlines such as"John Kasich: The Candidate Who Wouldn't Leave?" and "Kasich is a proven loser who should drop out." Kasich has settled deeper into the couch and read all of them.
