WASHINGTON (AP) — More than a decade ago, Bill Clinton spotted a political star in the making, someone he predicted would go from a big-city mayor to a national leader – maybe even to the White House. “I won’t be surprised if you go all the way,” Clinton wrote in a 2002 letter to Baltimore’s mayor, Martin O’Malley.

In the years that followed, Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton showed up time and again as their young ally gained stature as governor of Maryland, hosting fundraisers, headlining rallies and connecting him to their sprawling network of political donors.

Now, O’Malley is just days away from walking down the path Clinton laid out for him more than a decade ago, as he prepares to announce his presidential campaign in Baltimore on May 30. And that means transforming himself from one of Hillary Clinton’s most loyal supporters into her chief adversary for the Democratic nomination.

“It’s certainly been a long and friendly relationship,” said Steve Kearney, a former O’Malley aide. “Times change. He clearly thought she was the best candidate in 2008. We’ll find out whether that remains true today.”

God help us. Did they not see what he has done to us in Maryland or do they just another way of taking more money to line their pockets by making the whole country pay a rain tax? map

What a surprise!!!! Another democrat liar and cheat. Just what the entire US needs after Clintons, and obamams, there won't be anything left to steal.

I lived in MD and know first-hand the problems, the devastation omalley caused to MD citizens, and the entire state. 35 tax and fee increases, including the rain GOD sends to all people.

He has single-handily put more businesses out of business in the state than all other governors for the state of MD. AND made businesses go elsewhere in search of finding new and better states to do business.

No one in their right minds (even with the billions the Clintons are fronting) should even consider much less vote for this sham of a person. He has no morale code other than to rob and take as much money from others under the name of progress as he can maneuver people to do his bidding. Now remember he will kiss the old folks, and love on all the babies, but be aware he has his eyes on your wallets. And that's the extent of his care for you period!!!!

Right - Martin O'Malley destroyed, I mean destroyed Maryland's economy. And as for Baltimore, the coals still burn are more than a week of intense rioting.

Now you tell me - once the major networks look back into his past, he will fall by the wayside - like an anchor.

3:39 That depends if the MSM supports him or not. We were never allowed to see the real Obama or his past by the MSM when he ran, now that we know he is a Muslim and a communist from his background and own writings it's a little to late.

"once the major networks look back into his past, he will fall by the wayside - like an anchor." He's a democrat. The 'major networks' will do everything in their power to cover his mistakes and make him look like the second-coming. Just as they did with Obama. And the fools will fall in line to vote for him.
