    to bite off more for voters than they can chew.  I am very happy that a black man will be elected president in November.  Extremely so.  I am happy that man is Barack Obama.  But I worry that voters might say with a female on the ticket that it is too much, too soon.  I mean to offend no one; blast me if you like.  Need help?  Okay, I'll start:  sexist pig, progressive poser . . .

      I wont blast you, I don't think it's too much too soon, but it's a viewpoint out there, held by many people although they won't readily admit it.

    •  It's a possibility, and one that I expect that (0+ / 0-)

      Obama will be polling.  I will note that if he doesn't pick a woman, the chances are good that McCain might -- Sarah Palin would have been perfect had she not just given birth to a trisomy-21 (Down's) baby -- and thus possibly make inroads with women voters.  So there are dangers on both sides.

      Sebelius, happily, can be defended as a great candidate based on her record.  Yes, people don't yet know her record: but they will, and it's a great story.

      John McCain's Court will overturn Roe; don't kid yourself.
