Hillary Clinton, Mike Tyson two of a kind

The Wall Street Journal published an op-ed this past week co-authored by Mark Penn, a former adviser to both Bill and Hillary Clinton. The column tells us that Hillary will indeed run again for President again in 2020 and that a new version, referred to as Hillary 4.0, will crush a field of Democrats on her way to again securing the party's nomination and apparently finally taking her rightful place in history as America's first woman president.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich won his first election to public office in 1978.
