KS Gov Sebelius' Democratic Response to the SOTU

That's my Governor. Oh Yeah!

KS Gov Kathleen Sebelius
Transcript here.

Rumors are Gov. Sebelius going to endorse Barack Obama on "Tuesday or Wednesday." If so, I'm guessing it'll probably be Tuesday when Obama will be in Eldorado, Ks., "his grandparents' hometown."

Also, I know that it's putting the cart before the horse, but it's not surprising that there is further speculation that Sebelius may be lined up to become Obama's running-mate should he win the nod. We'll see. Obama's still got a steep hill to finish climbing with only a week before Super Tuesday. I do think that she would be a great choice for a number of reasons though. She's a two term red state Gov with a 64% approval rating who knows how to get the job done, and she aint afraid to go up against the big energy boys to do what's right.

I can see a few reasons to suspect Sebelius is aspiring, deservedly so imho, for bigger and better things. She's been making rounds outside the state for a while now. She's also featured in Feb's Vogue magazine (hence the pic), and conspiracy theorists will just love the fact that she attended a gathering of the Bilderberg Group, "a select group of international business leaders, diplomats, thinkers and statesmen," in Istanbul, Turkey last year. Just like Clinton and Bush!! Oh No! Get real. Alright, sorry about that, but I've already seen it on threads so I know it will only increase if she does move up the food chain, as she seems poised to do. Is her next stop going to be Cheney's place? Who knows? If so, I sure hope she consults a feng shui expert, exorcist, or something along those lines before she moves in to make it suitable living quarters for the undead, but I digress. I'd say it all adds up to one really classy lady with the smarts to match who's ready for whatever comes next, so it's no surprise the movers and shakers would want to hear from her.

[Update] Lest anyone think I'm way out there bringing up the whole Bilderberg thing the way I did, here's the KC Star reporting on yet another visit to the mysteriously elite Bilderberg group, this time in VA.:
