    Mark Parkinson’s switch to the Democratic Party and his place on the re-election ticket of Gov. Kathleen Sebelius may herald a realignment of Kansas politics.

    Or it may just be politics as usual, the curtain-raiser for another Kansas election year, insiders and observers say.

    Either way, Sebelius could not hide her satisfaction Wednesday when she introduced Parkinson as a freshly minted Democrat and her running mate. After listing his business and political credentials, Sebelius paused and grinned.
