Can't you just drag out a selection rectangle?  The other obvious idea 
would be to change your workflow so that it groups together each graph - 
then clicking on it would be enough to select the entire graph.

Finally, one could of course make an ipelet that selects exactly the 
objects inside the primary selection.  So select a box, call the ipelet.

Here is an attempt at such an ipelet.
