The Bloom Is Off of the O’Malley Rose

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley was once a rising young star among the liberal elite. That no longer appears to be the case.

Accustomed to being treated like left-wing royalty, O’Malley has no real part to play in this week’s Democrat National Convention. While Marylanders Barbara Mikulski, Steny Hoyer, Chris Van Hollen and Elijah Cummings all have speaking roles, O’Malley has been relegated to the role of average delegate.

Why? O’Malley justifies the cool breeze because of his early support for Sen. Hillary Clinton. Perhaps. It is more likely because O’Malley is an unpopular Democrat governor in one of the bluest of blue states.
