Milton Wolf is, by all reasonable prediction, a nut.  Pat Roberts is a Washington veteran.

A 'more conservative' candidate pulls to a 43-39 with Roberts.  Wolf isn't recognized by 70+% of the respondents.

So what if we pulled a McCaskill?  What if Democrats decided to run ads early in the primary process decrying Milton as "too conservative for Kansas?"

I don't think Sebelius can win against Roberts, but a nutty nobody is someone who she can beat.

If Wolf wins the primary without significant name recognition, Sebelius could beat him, and whatever chance the GOP had at the Senate would be in tatters before the cycle started in earnest.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  First time I'm weighing in on it, but Sebelius (2+ / 0-)

    running is a bad idea.

    Unless by Christmas the ACA is successful beyond anyone's wildest dreams, she will get pounded night and day over Healthcare.gov. If she's lucky.

    Would be better off running in 2016 against Moran.  More time for ObamaCare to turn from a negative to a potential positive even in Kansas.

      Plus, I don't think she really wants to jump from the frying pan into the fire right away. She deserves some time off.

      Your beliefs don't make you a better person. Your behavior does.
