— Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, on some short lists as Obama’s running mate or a member of his cabinet, was in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday — not to be sworn in, but as an observer. Sebelius and other governors from around the nation had a prime spot to view the swearing-in ceremony.

“We actually could see the whole Mall while it was going on and I don't think anybody has ever seen a crowd like that gathering,” Sebelius said. “It was very exciting, very moving, just a remarkable day in history, and so wonderful to participate."
