John Kasich speaks at the California GOP convention in Burlingame, Calif., last week.

Twenty-two horses have been entered for Saturday's Kentucky Derby, two more than the maximum field of 20. The field is limited to the top 20 horses based on points earned in designated prep races. Leading the way is undefeated Nyquist, winner of the Florida Derby.
|Elizabeth Warren unleashes Twitter tirade on Donald Trump||UNC's Meeks back for senior year after NBA draft flirtation (Yahoo Sports)|
The Massachusetts senator and liberal Democratic firebrand says the likely Republican nominee's "toxic stew" must be stopped before it reaches the White House.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina's Kennedy Meeks will withdraw from the NBA draft and return for his senior season.
|Trump on choice for VP: ‘I’ll probably go the political route’||LeBron has thought about playoffs matchup with Wade, Heat (Yahoo Sports)|
Fresh off an Indiana primary win that cemented him as the likely Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump says he’s leaning toward a politician for his vice presidential running mate — and will make a decision on fundraising for the general election in the next week. “I have the business — let’s call it talents,” Trump said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday.
James has considered the possibility of playing the Miami Heat - his former team and good friend Dwyane Wade - in the next round, a dramatic matchup that already has fans salivating at its potential. If Cleveland can advance past Atlanta, and if Miami takes care of Toronto, it will be the Cavaliers and Heat in the Eastern Conference finals. ''Naturally, of course,'' he said following shootaround Wednesday as the Cavs prepared for Game 2 with the Hawks.
|Can Bernie Sanders really change the Democratic Party at the convention?||Warriors rally in fourth for 2-0 series lead on Portland (Yahoo Sports)|
Bernie Sanders, fresh off a victory over Hillary Clinton in Indiana’s open primary, told reporters Tuesday night that he believes he can pull off “one of the great political upsets in the history of the United States.” Most political observers are deeply skeptical.
The defending champions mounted a remarkable comeback without MVP Stephen Curry. Klay Thompson scored 27 points and gave Golden State its first lead of the game on a 3-pointer with 5:33 left, and the Warriors rallied to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 110-99 on Tuesday night for a 2-0 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series. ''It started with how focused we were in that fourth,'' Thompson said.
|Obama visits Flint as questions linger on EPA role in water crisis||Wade, Heat beat Raptors in OT after Lowry's halfcourt heave (Yahoo Sports)|
By Timothy Gardner WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Wednesday will visit Flint, Michigan, a city struggling with the effects of lead-poisoned drinking water, as questions linger over whether his environmental regulators could have acted more urgently to address the crisis. Obama will get updates from federal officials on the response in Flint, a mostly African-American city where more than 40 percent of the city's 100,000 people live in poverty. "Like you, I'll use my voice to call for change and help lift up your community," Obama wrote last week to Amariyanna Copeny, an eight-year-old Flint girl who has marched in protests about the crisis and had asked to meet him.
It only counts as one win, though the Miami Heat had to work twice as hard to get it. Goran Dragic scored 26 points, Dwyane Wade had seven of his 24 in overtime after Kyle Lowry's halfcourt shot tied it at the buzzer, and the Heat beat the Toronto Raptors 102-96 on Tuesday night in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. ''We had to win the game twice tonight,'' Wade said.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
