Sebelius to endorse Obama today

January 29, 2008, 10:19 a.m. Updated January 29, 2008, 12:43 p.m.


Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has said she will endorse Democrat Barack Obama for president.

Obama will be in El Dorado today for a campaign rally.

Obama's event is in the gymnasium at Butler Community College, and its doors open at 11:45 a.m. His campaign noted that El Dorado was the hometown of his grandfather on his mother's side.

Wow...just wow. The cumulative IQ of the unemployed morons posting here must fall shy of the single digits.

Saw a funny clip on TV last night. Ted Kennedy a year ago, could not remember/say Obama's name!! LOL.

Told you... I knew this was coming.

Her response speech last night was all too similar to Obama's continuous message on the trail.

Sen. Kennedy's and Gov. Sebelius's endorsements are as worthless as the American Dollar.

Now she and Obama can discuss that 10,000 who they alleged that lost their lives in the Greensburg tornado.

Marion, if you're going to insult the governor, you could at least spell her name right. It makes you look unintelligent, not her.

BigPrune 10 years, 3 months ago

You mean Obama isn't going to Greensburg to pay tribute to the 10,000 killed from the tornado? Yes, he said 10,000 were killed.

stuckinthemiddle 10 years, 3 months ago

ah yes... the Obama gaffe about 10,000 killed... if you're entertained by that kind of thing... run a google search on "bush gaffes"... start clicking... and marvel at one of history's true masters at butchering language and logic:

Obama will realize in a week that these endorsements mean nothing. Hillary is going to win most of the big states. The only big state Obama will win is his home state of Illinois. Clinton has double digit leads in California, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Missouri.

"I endorse Copperhead Ale."

Where can I get a yard sign!?!

chapdaddy 10 years, 3 months ago

I, too, endorse Copperhead Ale, by the kegload. I'm surprised Teddy Kennedy doesn't either.

badger 10 years, 3 months ago

I cannot let these statements pass.

Copperhead Ale is clearly inferior to Ad Astra. If you will look at my PowerPoint presentation here (click click), you will see the clear and graphical evidence that Copperhead Ale lacks the depth and vision to be your beer of choice.

Ad Astra '08!

sets self on fire

Marion says "Kansas:::just as stupid as you think it is. At least if Sibelius is considered."

I always liked Sibelius. I think his 2nd symphony and Valse Trieste were fabulous. Don't know why Marion thinks he's stupid, or what he has to do with Kansas - him being from Finland and all, but I guess we are all entitled to our opinion.

Marion isn't saying anything different about the Governor's name that this TV network hadn't already said......with a heck of a much larger audience:,2933,325852,00.html

GOP: ""A tax, spend and retreat liberal from Kansas endorsing a tax, spend and retreat liberal from Washington, no surprise."

Notice that they had to insert "retreat" in here. ha!

And yet they didn't refer to King-Of-The-Deficits "W"

oldgoof 10 years, 3 months ago

President Bush, who can not even recommend in his budget full funding this year for the war we are not to retreat from.

Great budget work dude.

Thanks for posting that Agnostick...

I wonder which Democratic candidate the KS GOP would have preferred she endorse.

I enjoy the fact that conservatives and Republicans alike are absolutely terrified of Obama.

dirkleisure 10 years, 3 months ago

Just to make sure, we're talking about the GOP release concerning Barak Obama, right?


Who the f*** is that?

Also, you can't say Sibelius without saying Finlandia. And Die Hard II. Die Harder.

chapdaddy 10 years, 3 months ago

Ad Astra is not even the 4th best beer produced at Free State.

  1. Copperhead
  2. C3IPA
  3. Oatmeal Stout
  4. John Brown
  5. Ad Astra

I hope Kathleen uses washable ink. Or maybe Ted Kennedy and Oprah wrote their names really small when they endorsed him.

God forbid any candidate would want to work together, Democrat and Republican to solve our countries problems. Most posters on this forum would rather have a civil war, than have to have any dealings with people who don't agree with them. Thank goodness they don't have time to run for office, since they are posting all day long.

Sen. Kennedy's and Gov. Sebelius's endorsements are as worthless as the American Dollar.

========================= Except that both are so-called "super delegates." These special delegates control ~40% of the overall delegate vote. Hillary started off with a large number of such delegates, but has seemingly plateau'd at ~184. In contrast, Obama, who still has less than half of Hillary's superdelegate count, has begun to attract superdelegates in increasing numbers in recent days. Sen. Kennedy's and Gov. Sebelius's endorsements are part of that trend.

If Obama wants to have any hope of getting the nod to be the DNC candidate, he needs to pick up every last superdelegate that he can, as it is entirely possible for a DNC candidate to get the majority of "popular" delegates, but loss the nomination due to a lack of superdelegates.
