The editorial board said that, while Kasich was an underdog, he had "been capable of compromise and believes in the ability of government to improve lives." It said that front-runner Donald Trump did not have experience of international issues or interest in learning about them. It said Ted Cruz would "say anything to win." (Reporting by Idrees Ali)
