Sebelius bows out of MSNBC Veepstakes bracket


Sen. Joe Biden has knocked off Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius in the [ MSNBC Veepstakes][1] and advanced to a championship showdown with Sen. Hillary Clinton. Biden also was Sen. Barack Obama's surrogate-of-choice this morning on the Today Show.¢¢¢Even the selection of Sebelius may not mean Obama can make a run in Kansas, according to [John Nichols at The Nation.][2] Because the Sunflower State casts only six votes in the Electoral College, it's not a great loss, but Obama's ability to compete here might have been a symbolic victory, Nichols says.¢¢¢[Real Clear Politics][3] picks up on criticism of Sebelius from none other than Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly, who is targeting the Kansas governor based on her ties to Dr. George Tiller, a doctor who performs late-term abortions in Wichita.

I would vote for Obama ONLY if Kathleen was his running mate.
