PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius was among a group of leaders gathered this weekend at the National Governors' Association getting buzz as a possible presidential runningmate.

Those governors and former governors at the centennial congregation eyed each other for telltale hints.

Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty turned aside reporters' questions. Pennsylvania Democrat Ed Rendell insisted he had no interest in the vice presidency. Utah's Republican Governor Jon Huntsman and Arizona's Democratic Governor Janet Napolitano say neither campaign had approached them.

Sebelius made herself scarce. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, a Republican whom McCain often praises, was at work in Baton Rouge. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who's been helping former rival McCain lately, didn't show.
