O’Malley challenges Clinton to speak at Iowa State Fair.

Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley took several implied swipes at Hillary Clinton on Thursday, challenging the front-runner to make her case for the nomination from the soapbox at the Iowa State Fair.

A sweaty and upbeat O’Malley stood on the Des Moines Register soapbox making his case for the White House, while challenging the other Democratic contenders to do the same.

All of the Democratic candidates except Clinton are so far booked to speak at the outdoor gathering, which has also attracted many of the Republican presidential contenders.

“There are many candidates for president in our party who will stand before you — maybe some of them might even come to the soapbox — they will make progressive promises,” O’Malley said.

“But I’m the only candidate in our party who will look you in the eye and tell you that in 15 years of executive experience as a big city mayor and governor, I have brought people together to make progressive accomplishments and get things done,” he said.

1. I heard most of it on CSPAN

I thought he did a good job. I do believe that he will surprise a lot of people when it's time to cast votes in the primaries, or caucus. He seems to be able to talk with everyday people, to answer their questions and to show them "how" the plans on going about fixing things if he gets elected. He isn't just tossing out ideas, he has actual plans, and that really impresses me.
