_Editor's note: This is the first of a series of blogs on LJWorld.com that will explore the possibility that Kathleen Sebelius will ascend to national political office. The blog will be updated regularly._Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a two-term Democratic governor in a red state, is again in the news as a possible vice presidential candidate for Sen. Barack Obama.Sebelius first landed seriously on the national stage when she delivered the Democratic response to the President's State of the Union address.Since then, her prospects have been evaluated everywhere from [the Washington Post] to the Kansas City Star.[The Associated Press reports:] Obama's campaign refused to talk about who was being considered, but some in the party are calling for him to pick Clinton. Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said Thursday, "There have been no discussions with the Obama campaign about Senator Clinton being the V.P."Other possible options are governors such as Arizona's Janet Napolitano, Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas and Tim Kaine of Virginia; foreign policy experts such as former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd or Delaware Sen. Joe Biden; or other senators such as Missouri's Claire McCaskill and Virginia's Jim Webb. : http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/05/10/AR2008051002261.html?hpid=topnews : http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2008/may...
