Gov. Sebelius should have quoted Catholic newspaper for her response to Senator Kyl

News stories yesterday revealed that Gov. Kathleen Sebelius disclosed that she and her husband would need to divest investments in three stocks and a mutual fund to avoid a conflict of interest as HHS Secretary.

Could diverse Obama cabinet, appointments be a good thing for the GOP in the future?
Bill Richardson (D-NM) will likely be appointed something in Obama’s cabinet like Secretary of state. Lt. Gov. Diane Denish will likely take his place as as Gov. until 2010 elections.
