    I think that he would be an outstanding presidential candidate. Let's give this former Maryland governor the attention so he can get his message out to the people.

    I like the guy, but he's another in the long list of technocrats the Democrats are always going gaga for. What's needed now is someone who can articulate a vision. Let's face it, as evil and stupid as Reagan was, the man could sell his corrupt vision. We need someone who can sell ours as effectively.

    Sorry guys, wrong section. Meant for news & politics, but missed.

    And yeah, I'd gladly take another Reagan because Jeb is yet another technocrat. However, all other things being equal, I'd prefer a two term ex governor over a senator or congressmen for the administrative experience they'd supposedly have. The vision thing is great, but to be able to put it in motion....

    Gee Martin, Illegal Aliens are not "New Americans".

    Maryland replaced O'Malley with a Republican in November.

    O'Malley's policies seem only to have benefited the wealthy:

    When he was governor, he used to work out in the gym on base. I saw him there quite often, and would sometimes chat with him between sets. He always seemed very down to Earth, and genuinely concerned about regular people.

    In addition to his experience as Maryland governor, O'Malley was also mayor of Baltimore, a city that is still facing tough challenges. He was a very effective mayor but Baltimore is a very tough and troubled city that even the most skillful of leaders cannot turn around quickly.

    He will be a far superior and more qualified candidate than the hapless Hillary ho.
