"For the umpteenth time, Mr. O'Malley, Senator Obama is not available to talk to you - please stop calling us"

Just for fun, let’s note again just how much good Martin O’Malley’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton is doing for her. Remember he came on at a critical juncture to head up her Maryland campaign and at a time when her national lead was only 22 points. As late as November of 2007, Ms. Clinton was still clinging to a 19 point lead over Mr. Obama here in Maryland. Then, I guess, the Governor worked his magic:

February 12, 2008
Obama – 60%
Clinton – 36%
Maryland State Board of Elections

Side Note: Look how the Democrats break out their Delegate selection:

“Democratic Delegates to the National Convention
Female Delegates (Congressional Districts 2, 5, 6, and 8)
Female Delegates and Alternate (Congressional Districts 1, 3, 4, and 7)
Male Delegates (Congressional Districts 1, 3, 4, and 7)
Male Delegates and Alternate (Congressional Districts 2, 5, 6, and 8)”
Maryland State Board of Elections

…and yet 20% of their delegates (the so-called super-delegates) don’t go through the delegate selection process. Doesn’t that risk messing up their boy-girl seating plans?

Remember how helpful his endorsement was last time out?
well he was instrumental in making Howard Dean available to ascend to the top spot of the DNC
