The Democrats have remained mostly mute on Kathleen Sebelius. She is clearly the captain of the digital Titanic. She will go down with the ship.
Senators will face an electorate in a year that will be howling for scapegoats. Democrats will be the targets. So, they are trying to lie low. It is not easy.
One Senator has come to her defense: Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WVa.). He has denied that Sebelius should resign. He praised her record as Kansas’s insurance commissioner and governor.
Here is the woman who has presided over a political catastrophe. But she was really good at her old job, the Senator assures us.
But wait! There’s more! “She’s very capable of bringing people together. I think she . . . will get the job done.”
She has already gotten the job done. The job was to expose ObamaCare as a disaster. But it was a Tea Party job.
The Senator has this advantage: he does not face the voters until 2018.
