Sebelius Is Go

Well, so much for that Senate seat in Kansas, although the next year and a half is going to be such a tough time to be a Governor that I think Obama is in some ways throwing Sebelius and Napolitano a lifeline. Anyone who is Health and Human Services Secretary when the system is reformed is going to get a massive amount of popularity. Sebelius herself might be looking to a higher office in 2016. And there's the Mel Martinez model of a cabinet secretary who moved into elected office after the first term. If Sebelius can manage the office, I think it's a good choice.
