Kathleen Sebelius was elected Kansas governor by playing down partisanship and capturing more than Democrats’ votes. But she has been boldly partisan ever since she endorsed Barack Obama in January, and recently on the attack against John McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin. If Obama wins, Sebelius might get a Cabinet job. But if he loses, Sebelius’ logical next move would be a run for Congress. “Will moderate and independent voters — whose support she’d need to get to Washington — forgive and forget the partisanship Sebelius has been displaying since before the primary?” asks the Topeka Capital-Journal’s Ric Anderson. We could add that Sebelius now has another problem with some voters — her efforts to keep western Kansas from getting new coal-fired power plants.
