What are the odds?


So exactly what are Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' chances of being Sen. Barack Obama's running mate? Well, [ bodog.com,][1] an online betting site, says the Kansas governor has an 8/1 shot. That puts her in fourth place after Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine and Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh, who both are listed as 3/2, and Sen. Joe Biden, who is pegged at 15/2. Sen. Christopher Dodd comes in at 10/1, and Hillary Clinton is trailing the pack at 12/1.¢¢¢Here's a thought. Is all the attention on Kaine just a decoy for Obama's real choice, Sebelius? A blogger on [ 411mania.com][2] - not the most mainstream source of political news - points out that the leaks about Kaine seem out of character for the very controlled Obama campaign. Could they just be trying out the idea of an outside-the-Beltway, pro-choice Catholic governor in preparation for a Sebelius announcement?
