Kansas Governor Touts Obama, Slams McCain at DNC

Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius took the stage at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday night - and wasted no time lashing out at Republican John McCain.

Sebelius talked about the housing crisis, saying the American dream has become a nightmare for many who can't afford their mortgage payments and are facing foreclosure. Sebelius reminded the audience of Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz" saying there was no place like home.

"In John McCain's version," Sebelius said, "there's no place like home - or a home - or a home - or a home," referencing recent reports that McCain and his wife own seven homes.

Sebelius spoke for about six minutes, saying McCain offers more of the same, while Barack Obama will bring about change to create jobs and develop new sources of energy. She also said he's a person who can bring people together and make this a country where all children share an equal destiny.

Sebelius also highlighted Obama's Kansas roots, and said he would help revitalize rural America.

Kansas Republican Party Executive Director Christian Morgan reacted to the speech, saying he feels Sebelius is a bad spokesperson for building the economy nationally when he doesn't feel she's done much to build the economy here at home. He also said that, for someone who touts her bipartisan credentials, Sebelius seemd to attack McCain rather agressively.
