A Cincinnati Democrat gets the last word over Bush
A Democrat from Cincinnati will be delivering the Democratic response to President Bush's final State of the Union address.
A Cincinnati Democrat who happens to be governor of Kansas.
Kathleen Sebelius, daughter of former Ohio governor John J. Gilligan, will follow Bush's speech with the Democratic take on where the country stands.
It will raise the national profile of Sebelius, who was elected to a second term as Kansas governor in 2006. Earlier this month, the Washington Post listed Sebelius as one of seven Democrats who Might make good running mates for either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, pointing out that Obama might have a soft spot for Kansas, his mother's home state.
Sebelius, a graduate of Summit Country Day School, will be back in town next month for the Cincinnati USA Chamber's annual dinner where her father will be enshrined as a Great Living Cincinnatian.
