Bleeding Heartland: Please tell me this is someone's idea of a joke

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

I've written before that I think it would be a huge mistake for Barack
Obama to select any Republican for a running mate. The next president
will appoint at least two and perhaps four Supreme Court justices.
Obama is a longtime smoker with a family history of cancer. I don't
want any Republican in line to inherit the presidency. And I've
written that I think it would backfire for him to choose a woman other
than Hillary Clinton for vice president. Not that I have anything
against Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius (I would give her serious
consideration if she ran for president someday). But I agree with a
MyDD commenter who wrote that for Obama to pick Sebelius or Missouri
Senator Claire McCaskill would be like Hillary picking Harold Ford as
a running mate if she had won the nomination.
