Sebelius Quiet on Conversations with Obama Campaign

TOPEKA - Gov. Kathleen Sebelius was keeping quiet early Friday afternoon about any conversations she may or may not have had with Democratic Presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama.

Obama told reporters he had spoken with the running mate contenders on his short list and informed him of his choice, but he declined to reveal who the person was. The campaign said it would make the choice public in a text message and email that could go out at any time.

Arriving for a meeting of the Kansas Innovative Consortium at the Kansas History Center, Sebelius said, regarding of whether she is chosen as a vice presidential candidate, she remains an enthusiastic supporter of Obama. She says she will continue to campaign on his behalf right through the November election.

Asked if she'd consider another position in an Obama administration if not selected VP, Sebelius said, "Who knows? I may have a job announced in the near future. Can't tell."

Sebelius' schedule calls for her to travel to Denver Saturday for the Democratic National Convention. Sebelius is a co-chair of the event. She speaks Tuesday evening.

Obama is set to appear with his running mate Saturday at a rally in Springfield, Illinois.
