Sebelius interview

DoubleSpeak with Matthew and Peter Slutsky interviews Governor Kathleen Sebelius, among other randomness. Skip to about minute 5.

Asked how Democrats can win in even Red states, her answer is simple: take responsibility and get results.

Getting results is a theme for her, avoiding the insider silliness of Washington in order to improve people's lives.

She's optimistic about getting a majority of Democratic governors and taking back at least one House of Congress.

More than any of the details, though, what shines through is her thoughtfulness. Smart answers that get past posturing to the substance of the issues Kansas and America faces. There's a reason her name keeps floating around as a nominee for higher office. She isn't just another ambitious politician.
