Calling Martin O'Malley a DLCer is as ridiculous as calling Bernie Sanders a gun nut.

Governor O'Malley has been a champion of progressive policy for years. He's been there on LGBT rights, immigration, education, gun control, criminal justice, abolishing the death penalty, and taking care of veterans.

I'm sorry he said some less than flattering things about Sanders, but Governor O'Malley is not a DLCer or a centrist by any stretch of the imagination.

1. Actually, he did start out in that wing of the party.

That being said, his language is unequivocal today as a progressive and I believe him. He doesn't use weasel words and phrasing and is direct in his answers. He would make a fine President.

2. He's okay now, but it is a legitimate subject

 

There have been a lot of Trojan Horses in the last 30 years.

Bill Clinton running as a populist "I'll fight for you ti the last dog dies." Problem is he didn't make it clear enough who the "you" he was referring to really was.

4. Did somebody actually say that?

If so, this Sanders supporter does not approve. MO'M is a pretty solid progressive afaik. Seems like reasonably decent guy.
