Democratic Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper won't dismiss the possibility of a run for the White House with Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich.

His comments came during a Politico Playbook Exchange event.

"I don't think Kasich would ever do that . . . You never know," Hickenlooper said. "You never say. He's an easy person to work with. He's strongly opinionated. And quick to his opinion.

"But he also knows as much about the federal budget, and understands healthcare at a deeper level than almost any other governor I know . . . I don't think it's in the cards. But I do like the idea of working with him in some context at some point."

He also told Politico's Playbook he would not rule out a run against Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo. Hickenlooper said he was disappointed Gardner's stance on healthcare.

"That's not the Cory Gardner I thought I knew," he said.

Hickenlooper noted: "The moment I start talking about what I'm going to do after I'm done (being governor)…not only do I get distracted (but) all my Cabinet and everybody gets distracted."
