Obama's Kindred Soul: Kathleen Sebelius

A glowing article in the Boston Globe about Kathleen Sebelius, the person among the "most talked about" by Obama's staff as a potential running mate.

"I think a red state governor is a good symbolic pick, and I think that someone who has got real Ohio roots is an added bonus," said Steve Elmendorf, a Democratic strategist and former deputy campaign manager for John F. Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign.

She has won praise for appointing highly capable deputies, and for encouraging them to cooperate. When the state Supreme Court required Kansas to dramatically increase school spending, Sebelius found a way to add more than $800 million to schools over several years without raising taxes.

Sebelius ... is not shy about appearing ambitious. Asked whether she would feel ready to be president of the United States if necessary, she replied with characteristic composure that she would rely on bright and talented people to help her. "That capacity to make decisions and kind of trust your instincts," she said, "has been confirmed to be pretty good in the past."
