  •  But would Sebelius (0+ / 0-)

    Swing Kansas, I don't think so.

    Would her selection be a shap stick in the eye to Hillary, I do think so.

    So is Sebelius worth it?  No.

    •  Hard to say (0+ / 0-)

      would Sebelius swing Kansas, I don't think so

      Got any polling to back that up?

      Otherwise, I'm not sure how we could say.  Sebelius is quite popular in Kansas, and has brought a lot of people there into the Democratic Party.

      •  I don't think Kansas is voting for Obama (1+ / 0-)

        Until I see a close presidential election there, I wouldn't put anyone from Kansas on the ticket.

        •  Fair enough (0+ / 0-)

          But I'd want to see polling before I rule anything out.

          I agree, it's unlikely that Kansas will be going Dem anytime soon.  Still, strange things have happened - such as Obama polling strong in places like Indiana, Montana, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, North Dakota, etc..

          •  Polls in July (0+ / 0-)

            Don't trust them never have.  Show me a poll in October that says he's close in those states, then we've got a landslide.

            I still think the best VP candidate fills obama's weak spots, strong foreign policy experience and a known quantity.  I think Webb does that best, Sebelllius is neither a known quantity or known for her foreign policy knowledge, so I wouldn't pick her.

            But I'm not Obama.
