Sebelius campaigns for Obama

Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius – often-mentioned as a potential running mate for Barack Obama – will campaign for the Illinois senator Wednesday in her hometown of Cincinnati.

Her father, former Ohio governor John J. Gilligan, will be with her at what is being billed as a "community issues forum" at the Laborers Union Hall, 3457 Montgomery Rd. in Evanston. The event, which is open to the public, begins at 2 p.m.

Sebelius, a graduate of Cincinnati’s Summit Country Day School, was re-elected to a second term in 2006. On Feb. 3, she delivered the Democratic response to a national television audience following President Bush’s final State of the Union address.

The next morning, Sebelius traveled to Eldorado, Kansas, the hometown of Obama’s maternal grandparents, where she endorsed Obama’s bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Later that week, her father, who served as Ohio’s governor from 1971 to 1975, told the Enquirer that he, too, is supporting Obama over Hillary Clinton.

Two more supposedly Roman Catholic
pro-aborts for Obama. Lovely.

Wonder if anyone will ask Governor Sebelius about her support of late term abortionist, Tillar the Killer in Kansas.

you can always count on the Repug-Nazis to raise the abortion issue when all else fails.

Here's for an "Obama/Sebelius08" ticket. I think that Governor Sebelius is the ONLY ONE for the Vice Presidential job. I just hope Barack picks her, it would be GREAT.

Vice President Kathleen Sebelius, I like it, I like it, I like it. Then after eight years, President Kathleen Sebelius, I like it, I like it, I like it.

Exactly what the Gilligan gang are hoping for ...

I'm not sure what a "Repug-Nazi" is. Are they anything like Rush Limbaugh's femi-nazis? This pro-life blogger happens to be a Catholic and not a Republican.

Sorry you get upset when the abortion issue is raised. Sebelius and her father claim to be Catholics but disregard the Church's non-negotiable position against the taking of innocent life. That's why Summit Country Day refused to let her speak there last year.

Gov. Sebelius is a Catholic. Abortion is one thing, but supporting late term abortions is beyond my understanding. I understand that human beings make mistakes, and most Catholics are not as rigid as you want to think.

But, the line has to stop somewhere.

I recall the govoner's daddy when he was our govoner. I think about him each and every time I write my check to send with my state tax return - - the one term govoner John Gilligan gave us the state income tax as you probably recall.


What is your deal with Repug-Nazis?

Lots of folks have been discussed for a running mate for Obama.. my bet is on a Southerner with a strong military record and plenty of political experience and perhaps as long in the tooth as McCain to help avoid McCain's likelihood of treating Obama as a 'young whippersnapper'. Seriously though, is there any demographic that McCain is strong in (I'm not saying he doesn't have supporters in other demographics but strong would be more than 50%) except with people over 55? Nothing against older folks but that is all I ever see it seems int he backgrouns of his photo ops and rallies.
