Gov. Kathleen Sebelius was ranked by Time magazine among the nation’s top five governors. A recent poll showed her with a 62 percent approval rating. As our editorial today suggests, she should be in a position to shape Statehouse action on the biggest issues facing Kansas, even though she’s a Democrat and the state is predominantly Republican. But she didn’t show much inclination toward inspiring leadership in either her low-key State of the State address Monday night or her latest budget proposal. And she reportedly has no plans to offer a school finance solution herself in response to the legislative audit’s call for $400 million more, opting instead to assist legislators’ efforts. A governor so well-positioned for re-election in November should be bolder now.
