54. So your argument against Sebelius is that she should run for the Senate?
That's not a bad argument.

On the other hand, Mark Parkinson would be the new governor and he would get the name recognition necessary to run for re-election - or even the US Senate - in 2010.

I feel similarly about my governor - Janet Napolitano - in that I'd love her as Obama's VP or in his Cabinet, but I would also like her to take McCain's or Kyl's Senate seat.
