LISTEN! 'Trump Still Stimulates Democratic Anxiety Disorder' MO'M podcast

LISTEN to him!!!

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley warned his fellow Democrats not to take too lightly the general election threat posed by Donald Trump.

In a forum co-hosted by the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service and the “Candidate Confessional” podcast, O’Malley called the broad dismissal of Trump’s White House prospects elitist — the result of punditry that’s divorced from an increasingly angered electorate.

“There’s a certain smugness inside the beltway in Washington,” O’Malley said. “I think we have our work cut out for us. This could be a very, very defining moment in the life of our republic. And I think that we have our work cut out for us in the general.”

“This is not a slam dunk,” Martin O’Malley warns.

3. I really like the final part about the suggestion that he run again.

O’Malley, toward the end of the interview, recounted how a man in Iowa approached him and — with the campaign clearly not looking so healthy at that point — pleaded with him to “promise” that he’d run again.

“And I said to him, ‘No!’” O’Malley said. His son, William, was with him as the interaction took place. When it was done, he turned to his dad: “It is like volunteering for a second waterboarding before the first one is done.”


William is a great kid. All of O'Malley's children are outstanding. Katie is special as well. This family belongs in the White House.

4. I liked the 'waterboarding' remark too.

Such a difficult venture.
