It's All About Vetoes in Kansas

As expected, this morning, the Kansas House passed a bill authorizing massive expansion of the Sunflower coal-fired power plant - but the tally is still five votes short of being veto-proof....and Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has vowed to veto this bill as she did with three previous Sunflower bills.

It seems probable that Sebelius can withstand this latest gambit, if she's still governor. Any day now, the rumor mill says, Obama will steal Sebelius away for a cabinet post. To be sure, the lieutenant governor is a staunch opponent of Sunflower, but he's not Sebelius.
