At long last, Kathy.

Since time immemorial, this blog has held a candle for the unbelievably popular and effective Governor of Kansas. In a few minutes time she will be nominated as Health and Human Services Secretary. Not only will this gift Obama a talented cabinet minister but America will benefit from the universal health care programme she will usher in. Change we can believe in indeed.

Some have expressed a logical concern that this will cost Dems any chance of picking up the Kansas open Senate seat in 2010 but I feel that that exchange is a price well worth paying to end the travesty of 47mn uninsured Americans (and to stop Phil 'Child hater' Breddesen in his tracks). Besides, the 2010 table is already set beautifully for our Senate chances.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some early afternoon champagne to pop, and thoughts of 2016 to occupy my mind...
