28. Principles for O'Malley

O'Malley attended the Jesuit Gonzaga High School and graduated from The Catholic University of America, before earning his law degree at the University of Maryland School of Law. His Jesuit and Catholic education provided O'Malley with excellent training in ethics and philosophy, courses mandatory at The Catholic University of America. His essentially pragmatic approach to problem-solving is guided by adherence to principles, and he is especially committed to the idea of the dignity of each and every human being. The term "human dignity" has appeared in many of his speeches, as long as I can remember. The term "common good," which lost favor with Reagan conservatism, has also been a consistent theme in O'Malley's speeches. O'Malley's opposition to the death penalty, like his support of marriage equality, is rooted in his belief in the dignity of each and every unique human being. I believe that, for O'Malley, governing a city, state, or nation is like being a lead musician in a band, where each individual and different musician and instrument contributes to the harmony of the whole.
