Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley took a substantive step today toward the vice presidency…he announced his candidacy for president. He will just have to play nice with Hillary during his quixotic campaigning.
He’s relatively young (52) , but not so young in appearance to make Hillary look, well, old. He is to the left of Hillary, so the base will like him. And, likely most important, he was a successful governor. His biggest downside is that he’s not a minority. Then again, maybe he’s forward-looking. In about twenty-five years, he will be.
