Nah, a leading Republican strategist says, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius won’t take on Sen. Pat Roberts in 2008.
Why? Roberts was once chief of staff to Rep. Keith Sebelius, father of Kathleen’s husband, Gary. Too many family ties, the Republican says.
Of course, a very popular governor who has managed to produce a resurgent party statewide is hardly someone who would worry about peeving her father-in-law. Perhaps someone has some dirt on Sebelius via the in-laws, but you’d think that would have made an appearance by now.
Unfortunately, the only warning the Star’s blog gives about this game of musical chairs is:
Caveat punditor: If Sebelius loses in November all of this goes out the window, on the wings of a Kansas breeze.
But everyone will be too busy hiding from the epidemic of airborne poo emitted by all that pork on the wing.
The real question is whether Pat “Memory Pills” Roberts will bother running again in 2008.
