Maryland Gov. O’Malley’s Iowa visit sparks 2016 speculation, comparisons to Hillary Clinton
Washington Post ^ | 06/23/2014 | John Wagner

DES MOINES — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley was the only potential 2016 presidential contender to set foot in Iowa over the weekend, and yet the Democrat didn’t really have the stage to himself.

Shortly after O’Malley (D) spoke at a dinner Friday night for retiring Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), Hillary Rodham Clinton’s image appeared on two large screens overhead. In a video, she teased that she needed advice from Harkin on a “momentous plunge” that she is about to take. “Tom, what’s the secret to being such a terrific grandparent?” Clinton asked, drawing uproarious laughter from the crowd.

The good news for O’Malley is that he appeared to be taken seriously during a two-day swing through this state, whose first-in-the-nation caucuses give it disproportionate influence in deciding the Democratic presidential nominee every four years. Almost every party activist interviewed after O’Malley’s appearances said they would welcome an alternative to Clinton in the 2016 White House race, despite polls that show her the overwhelming choice of Democrats nationwide.

when it comes down to it, she may not run... i cannot see her being okay with losing the nomination twice... to Obama, she can chalk it up to his being the first black President... a novelty... but if she were to lose to a white male? or to another female? then she would have to conclude that it is “she” the citizens do not want/like... even if she doesn’t admit her conclusion out loud...

Former Colorado Gov. Schweitzer talking about a run too.

They're lining up. They know Hillary is weakening.

(My personal opinion is she does not intend to run. I think she's increasing her public exposure to try to get public support for her Benghazi defense.)

Remember when O’Malley said Dubya was more dangerous to the world than Bid Ladin?

I figured this would happen.

Hitlery’s book sales tanking. New questions about her health. Then, Miss Rodham makes that stupid gaffe about not having money when she and President BJ left the White House, and then she’s stupid enough to say it again a few days ago?!

The RAT presidential wanna-be’s smell blood in the water, and are going to start circling Iowa like sharks.

Don’t forget the news that just came out about her LYING about and SMEARING the reputation of a 12 year old minor who was raped by a man she was defending when she was a lawyer in the 1970’s.

And if it keeps moving and breathing, REGULATE IT.

And if it stops moving and breathing, SUBSIDIZE IT.

Yes! I forgot about that 12 year old rape victim story.

I’m sure the news media will report the story in length and Hillary’s disgusting conduct on the evening news tonight. (A blizzard hitting Miami tomorrow would be more likely).

Well, I have to admit that OweMalley and Hitlery have a lot in common, since they are both America-hating, lying, cheating frauds. But I could have saved some keystrokes if I had just said they are both Democrats.

I know you’re not lying about the rain tax, as I live in MD, too. Howdy, neighbor. Andy Harris is my representative, too.

Do you think it really makes much difference? Our next official president will be whoever Soros has chosen, and Valerie Jarrett will continue to be the de facto president cum puppet master.

The Rats’ redistricting is never a surprise to me. They are liars and cheaters.
