A reporter asked three Democratic governors -- Kansas' Kathleen Sebelius, Tennessee's Phil Bredesen and West Virginia's Joe Manchin -- about their interest in being vice president, with confusing results. Form the Chicago Sun-Times :
Evoking former Vice President John Nance Garner's quote that the vice presidency wasn't worth "a warm bucket of spit," Politico Editor John Harris asked Sebelius, Bredesen and West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin, "Are you willing to drink from that pitcher?"
"I'm drinking from that pitcher," Sebelius said, laughing.
"I will cross that bridge when and if it comes to me," Bredesen said.
"I would hope he would choose from the gubernatorial ranks," Manchin said, adding that their experience as CEOs qualifies them to be president.
(Hat tip: First Read)
Was Sebelius saying she wants to be vice president or she doesn't want to be vice president? Was she merely agreeing with the notion that the vice presidency is "a warm bucket of spit" or was she stating her willingness to do an unglamorous job? Since it's considered poor form to induce nausea in your readers, I'll stop there.
